I CAN HAS PULL REQUEST?!
Currency Cheat Sheet: Add currency symbols to content
The Instant Answer shouldn't trigger the cheat sheet for the query "currency symbols".
Zodiac: Switch to Icon template, use new icons
Similar to the Chinese Zodiac Goodie, this IA should now be converted to use the Icon template, and should use the new icons we've made.
Chess960: Remove clickable link from result
Currently the result is being wrapped in an anchor tag, with an href="#". This should be removed.
Frequency Spectrum: Convert to use templates + JS
Instead of injecting JS into the HTML, it should instead use templates and a separate JS file to handle modifying the DOM.
Convert HTML Goodies to Templates
Many legacy Goodies return HTML strings for rendering, but these can be improved now that we have templates!
Language cheat sheets should be triggered with the keyword "phrases"
In other words, instead of having to type "german phrases cheat sheet", the IA should be triggered with only "german phrases".
Have a good weekend!
