skak – Fonts and macros for typesetting chess games

This package provides macros and fonts in format which can be used to typeset chess games using PGN, and to show diagrams of the current board in a document. The package builds on work by Piet Tutelaers — the main novelty is the use of PGN for input instead of the more cumbersome coordinate notation (g1f3 becomes the more readable Nf3 in PGN).

An Adobe Type 1 implementation of skak's fonts is available as package skaknew; an alternative chess notational scheme is available in package texmate, and a general mechanism for selecting chess fonts is provided in chessfss.
