The A2K "chess widget" requires players to write moves in "algebraic notation. I will try to give a brief explantion.
Each square on the chess board has only one possible description in algebraic chess notation. The columns (files) are labeled "a" through "h". The rows (ranks) are labeled "1" through "8". Thus, a square can be described by its coordinates. For example: "d1" describes the square currently occupied by the White queen. "d8" describes the square currently occupied by the Black queen.
