 However, there's a little catch. The value is and'ed with the high byte of the address before it's stored. And to make it even more confusing, it's actually the high byte + 1. So if you store it in $fe00, the value is and'ed with $ff, and therefore unaffected. But since you don't always use all the 8 bits, other addresses might work as well. E.g. if your values are C64 colors, which are between $00 and $0f, the upper 4 bits don't matter. So in that case all pages ending in $e will work, i.e. $0e00, $1e00, etc. However, there's a little catch. The value is and'ed with the high byte of the address before it's stored.

-The opcodes are classified as unstable, but this only affects the and'ing. I'e' you can't rely on the and'ing always taking place, so sometimes the whole value is stored, and sometimes it's and'ed first. But if you use value/address combinations where the and'ing doesn't matter, the result is always the same.+The opcodes are classified as unstable, but this only affects the and'ing. So sometimes the original X/Y value is stored, and sometimes it's and'ed first.
