[Coco] Assembly Language Question

Thanks Darren - It's actually kind of a funny story as to how I figured it 
out - when I wrote it first in BASIC (the one that worked correctly), I 
referenced the Disk EDTASM+ manual for the Memory Locations. When I wrote 
the Assembly Version, I referenced the unravelled series. That's where I got 
crossed up. After I posted this to the list, I backtracked - looked at the 
Disk EDTASM manual and found my error.

You guys are great - it's nice to be able to ask a question about something 
as simple as this little joystick routine and not be ridiculed for writing 
something so simple. (and not being able to get it going)
