So the OP is using the form's action to reload the page, and seemingly making 
an ajax call under some circumstance that will also retrieve the whole contents 
of the same page - and do what with it?

Anyway if you just want to get the coords of a square into a form by clicking, 
I'd have thought just use JavaScript. No need for ajax for that bit, IMO. Use 
the ajax stuff to send the move off to the chess program script, and use its 
reply to update the board showing the new position.
