The following registers are 16-bit:

Instructions that try to access memory straddling past the end of ARAM (the last byte of which is at $FFFF) will wrap around and end up accessing the zeropage (which is at $0000). Accesses that use direct page addressing will wrap within the direct page.

The stack is always located in page one (at $0100). Memory accesses that straddle the end of the stack will wrap to the beginning of the stack.

Operands that use absolute addressing are prefixed with an exclamation point (!).
