[Description]: This is a web-based chess viewer written in Java to display and control checker moves. You can put all the cheker moves in a text file and use this viewer to step forward, backward, play, reset, stop. You can also set up the chess board with only the checkers you want and initialize their positions. This applet is suitable for an online chess tutorial.

[Tips]: Use the action button to control the viewer.

In the text file "ChessSteps.txt" of checker setup and moves, "K", "Q", "B", "N", "R", and "P" are for the white checkers while their lower-case counterparts are for the black side. The first 8 lines in the file are used to set up the initial positions. Edit this file for your purpose.
