  1. Thanks Eric !
    It's a neat touch highlighting
    Chess Problemists' birthdays. I did try a number of years ago to collect same, but didn't know
    how to go about it ! Now it's been done for me !

    Yours ever,
    Ken.

  2. No need to collect the birthdays: it has been done on the wiki site "Chess Composers in Various Alphabets":
    http://www.franziska-iseli.ch/cgi/twiki/bin/view/PCCC/ComposersNamesInVariousAlphabets
    It is not complete yet and new collaborators are welcome.
