To define data bytes, you use the .db pseudo-op, or for words the .dw pseudo-op. i.e.

table1:  .db "this is text"
         .db 000h,0001h,002h,003h
         .db "null-terminated",0
         .db 001h,"mixed",034h
         .db label

But it also supports .byte and .word syntax, correct?

I don't think it does.

Does it also support < and > to reference low and high bytes?

No it doesn't. You do this instead:

           lda #address & 255
           sta low_ptr
           lda #address >> 8
           sta high_ptr

Personally, I don't like the < and > operators anyways so this works good for me :-)
