I've been working on this more today. Thanks to having a development server, I've been able to make extensive changes without regularly introducing bugs into the scripts people were using to play games. I realized that I could use margins to position the highlighting, and I moved as much of the CSS as I could from each IMG's STYLE element to some STYLE tags. This reduced the HTML code and the filesize of the page. I also added some code that is more adaptive to grids with unusual geometries, though I didn't test it on anything more unusual than Shogi. I made the highlighting of the last move made always the same color as the other highlighting, and I increased the border size for the piece that last moved to 5px, which fits the space better. As mentioned before, I'm now using circular borders to highlight hexagonal spaces. I slightly reduced the size of borders highlighting empty spaces from the size I made them yesterday, because it looks better that way, though I kept them larger than they used to be.
