I have a problem encoding the chess table in Slovene Wikipedia:
The upper-right version is twice-templated and subject to my question
since it is not working, the lower version does not use main template
and is there only for comparision.
The idea is to have [[Template:Chess_Position]] and use it like follows:
... other initialisations
|h8=template for black knight
|g7=template for black king
|f7=template for white pawn
|e5=template for white king
|h4=template for white queen}}
I was using direct unicode characters instead of chess-piece templates,
but Internet Explorer users complained that they cannot see the
characters and they appeared in background color in Mozilla (*), so I
switched to templates that should display picture on the background.
But this does not work! Any hints where did I go wrong?
* Version with Unicode characters:
