Struggling

Finding a decent WYSIWYG editor; they all seem to fight with the theme, fail to display old pages entered using the plain text editor and/or mangle the content.  CKEditor also allows you to type in black on a dark brown background... Once I've finished battling with the raw HTML code I might install the YUI editor for members and visitors.

Chess Quotes

On advanced ideas:
"After giving a student the basic mating patterns and strategies you must begin giving them advanced concepts. At first these ideas will not make sense, many players will have a vague idea of what you are talking about but nothing more. Even a fragmented understanding of these concepts will prove useful though, and eventually they will improve as these lessons are assimilated by repetition and example."
— Jeremy SILMAN, The Amateur's Mind, 1995

 cf.:

"We begin with the hypothesis that any subject can be taught effectively in some intellectually honest form to any child at any stage of development. ... (The "spiral curriculum") ... Is it not possible ... to introduce them to some of the major ... ideas earlier, in a spirit perhaps less exact and more intuitive?"
