    Where does this symbol appear? Is it your mouse cursor?

    I wonder if garycameron might be trying to drag his chess pieces... I used to do that and get confused.

    Interesting. I knew what was being described was an available mouse cursor, but I had no idea how he was getting it. (I do not make it appear in my code)

    And you are right, of course, this is exactly what is going on.

    Now this has set me thinking, how many other people have given up, failing even to make a single move, because of this....

    Could you make it work both ways? Click or drag moves??? That would be nice.

    I could do ‘drag and drop’, I even did a prototype years ago, but it is a browser compatibility nightmare. So best not to.
