Good that at least one person actually read what was written ;)
I stopped reading after '8bit eproms of 8KB' and assumed the
rest was okay.
I tried to explain that this 16bit processor looks at its memory
the same way an 8bit processor does. A range of adresses, each
adress containing one byte. A wider 16bit bus does not change
this, but it *does* transfer 2 bytes per read cycle. One byte from
a 'low' adress, and another one from a 'high' adress. Adress meaning
here the adress in the processors memory map. How and where it is
stored in eprom, is of no importance. We could even shuffle the
eproms datalines in any order we want, as long as we shuffle the
bytes in the programmer-file in the same way.
