If you would like to publish noteworthy games on this page, please send them to the Webmaster [5] in Portable Game Notation (PGN), preferably annotated -as Aaron Nimzowitsch [6] once said, "The beauty of a chess move is not in its appearance, but in the thought behind it". Every game is a story, so if you have a good one, please share it. Most internet Chess clients and PC Chess programs are able to import/export in PGN format [7].

Each PGN viewer has its benefits and limitations. The Javascript viewer has some benefits in that it will display all PGN header fields, allows autoplay and is relatively tolerant to manual errors. It does however have problems with the Opera browser (versions earlier than 8.0) and limits lines to 255 characters (the PGN standard), which can be overcome by using multiple comments or multi-line comments. Note however, that the Applet viewer will display only the last comment in a sequence of comments, so please use multi-line comments instead. The Applet viewer will display comments better, but it does not show all the optional PGN header fields. The Applet viewer won't accept subtle errors in the PGN, can't deal with traditional two-character glyphs such as '!!', '!?' and "+?", and won't accept comments before the first move.
