Word : 16 Bit Signed: From -32768 to 32767 Unsigned 0-65535 in memory 64k memory size or memory addressing
Long Word 32 Bit Signed: From 2.147.483.648 to 2.147.483.648 Unsigned 4.294.967.295 in memory 4096Mb or memory addressing
so why the Xbios use a lot of long word is for memory addressing...

something along that road no?
