Expand "tactics" and "strategy" sections.

Notation

Make human notation more strict?
Gold always uses capital letters for pieces, and Silver always uses lowercase.
Don't allow change views every move. Either once at the beginning of the game, or create an absolute standard that is always used for this notation. (Also, either Gold view or current player view.)
Computer notation
Add () when push/pull.
Add explicit record of captures into the move list.
General
Borrow +/-/!/? notation from chess
