Aye. And fetched by the CHRGOT routine that was - inexplicably -  
copied directly into zero page.

Don't believe the hype: Microsoft couldn't write code even then. I  
think promoting all values to FP before doing sums on them - even if  
they started out in an integer variable - was among their dumbest  
moves. Bear in mind that FP is orders of magnitude slower than  
integer arithmetic on a 6502.
