Fonts on LaTex have always left me confused, so I've defaulted to xeLaTex in the past. Is there any simple way to use fontspec and *LaTex to use alternate fonts with with skak (or xskak)?
This would be far preferable to the method described in chessfss, which seems to be stuck in the nfss-era.
I've gotten most of the way through the chessfss documentation, generating my needed pfb files via fontforge and the tfm files via ttf2tfm (could've done that with fontforge, but found ttf2tfm first).
Unfortunately, I can't find nfss.tex on my system (or any info on how to install it).
