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.
