A Barely Adequate Guide to Displaying Chess Games with JavaScript

I've done a few of these Barely Adequate Guides in the past, the idea being that I want to explore how to do something with code that I've never done before, and I'll figure it out while writing the post so that we can all see my thought process as I go about solving the problem of getting something new up and running. This time I want to bring together two things I love doing in my free time: programming and chess. I wouldn't say I'm an especially good chess player—I'm quite mediocre actually—but I love the game, and I love learning it and reading books about it.
