Hi Fergus

I've now added a Diagram Designer generated diagram to the Setup portion of my 4*Chess webpage submission, by modifying your example 4-dimensional chess diagram through heavy trial and error to be pretty much the way I wanted (I had to use an even number of Columns to get the square colours alternating the way I wanted to for all the 4x4 mini-boards, though this resulted in thicker margins between the 16 mini-boards, which I wasn't too concerned about). 

I'm hoping there is a way to use the Designer's HTML code I've cut & pasted into my submission, by (during possible editing of my submission in future) cutting and pasting the HTML code of this existing diagram I generated into the HTML code box of the Diagram Designer (i.e. if and when I start up the Diagram Designer webpage from scratch). That is, I'm hoping I can do so by then getting the Diagram Designer to somehow update its generated tentative diagram (for 8x8 chess, by default) using the cut & pasted HTML code. Then I can make a new diagram I like for my 4*Chess variant (for example) without a ton of modifications by having to modify the FEN string (along with making necessary field changes) starting from scratch at the default (8x8 chess diagram). Do you know if this would be possible?

In any event, for at least the time being I can leave in the 20 or so crude diagrams in my submission, whether or not I add more Diagram Designer generated diagrams at some point.
