Correspondence Icons and Status Indicators

To shorten the display, a set of icons is used in the game list. Some of them are only present in certain circumstances, some are only valid for Xfcc based games, some for eMail based games. These indicators are stored internally and are restored to the last update from the server if no interet connection is available.

In Xfcc games, each opponents country may be displayed by the associated flag, if the server provides that information. For eMail based games this can be achieved by adding additional PGN tags for whiteCountry and blackCountry, each followed by the international three letter country code according to ISO 3166-1 (e.g. "EUR" , "USA" , "GBR" , "FRA" , "RUS" , "CHN" ...).
