Here's a first-cut sample of how something might look.


After getting it to this stage, one of the things I thought might be
nice would be to use GIFs rather than background colors, then have
alt-tags that named the location and what it did on that machine - so
you could hover over and see *why* a location was the color it was.

As it is now, it's useful to someone who knows a bit about how the
ROMs work and just wants to check where they can stick some little
tidbit.  I think most folks who are going to be programming a PET in
assembler probably already have their favorite locations, but this
might com in handy if you normally use the same few places over and
over, and suddenly need an extra 10-20 spots to stuff pointers and

Please let me know if this sort of map is interesting and I'll see
about cranking out a few more for the platforms I know well.
