Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software.

@Fergus, sorry, I looked up the recent thread but went to the old glossary anyway.  The newer one is more general and matches the use here, but I'd still suggest to remove the Vocabulary sections of the Piececlopedia in favor of links to the glossary.

@H.G., thanks, I'll add the board size comment later today.  (I just noticed you already brought up this complication almost a year and a half ago!)  Can the checkmating applet extend to accept a board size (as a URI query parameter)?  Is 14x14 or 15x15 too large to generate the endgame table in an online setting?
