The HTMLTTChess package


The HTMLTTChess package is a combination of a javascript, a css and an html file that allows the rendering of nice chessboards in HTML at any size or color, by using TrueType fonts and without the need of extra images. Chess game diagrams can be rendered in both color or B&W mode, and figurine movements or square of interests can be indicated as well. Diagrams rendered in B&W mode can also be copy-pasted into e.g. an office application.

Here is some screenshots of chessboard positions generated by this package:
