I learned assembly on the 6809, then the 8086 (technically the 8088). I've
always heard that it was designed to make porting code from the 8080/Z80
easy. But I never really learned the assembly for the 8080/Z80. I only
mentioned it because I think (if I recall) TED.COM was limited to editing
around 60K or so (one segment's worth of memory).
But I can see it won't fit your needs.
