And I didn't know that :)

I have a problem of understanding, does . stand for "current address"?
Where did you get this information, is it somewhere hidden in dasm.doc?

Your syntax might be to complex for simple aligning, but it's very
useful when you have to align some data relative to the start of a page.

This syntax offers a simple way for positioning graphics data at the
correct offset (as described in the latest Death Derby thread).

1. my old solution, using ALIGN:
  ALIGN 256
  ORG StartPage+90

2: using the new syntax:
  ORG [>.]*256+90


Have fun!
