I notice one slip-up in my notation: I have used B for both Bishop (2nd rank) and Brassgeneral (1st rank). However the letters are only for guidance as I have not given letters for promotees: any implementation would something more symbolic. It occurs to me that as 'more sideways than forward/backwards' obliques are not used in Shogi they could represent 3d radials in move-diagram symbols. I tried to draw some examples in Ascii Art, but the Preview stuck in extra newline characters which made them look all wrong.
