Tutorial: Concentration

Another 80-line javascript tutorial: concentration.html (view source) lets you test your memory by trying to find pairs of symbols. When you miss a pair, it flips them back to black after a second. How well can you do?

The program is an example of a very simple state machine with three states: none chosen, a first item is chosen, and a second item is chosen.

For symbols the game uses a bunch of cute and cryptic Unicode glyphs. This works fine on Windows with its Unicode Times New Roman font. Let me know if this is problematic on other platforms.
