Yeah, but come on, the chief use of chess characters is to cite them inline in text like any other symbol @ § % & and the other equally chief use of chess characters is to set 8 × 8 chessboards which float in space in the layout as figures. The layout requirement isn’t all that demanding that HTML offers a major advantage.
