That part, believe it or not, is correct. It gets set elsewhere, in 
another assembly routine. The part that really seems to be giving me 
trouble is this:

	jsr	[0xA000]  ; call POLCAT
	beq	read_key

where the routine will stay in a loop even if I press a key. The BASIC 
manual says that Z will be 1 upon finding no key pressed, but 0 if it 
is pressed. But my code doesn't seem to be reacting that way.
