I've been using skak to display diagrams of chessboards in pictures, but I'd like a little more functionality. In particular, I'd like to be able to:

a) display only a portion of the board

b) indicate the importance of certain squares with stars

Can I do this with skak? Or is there another package to use?

Use chessboard. And perhaps instead of skak, xskak.
