I also just posted a plain text version of the manual on my site:

Someone sent this a while back, but I can't remember who. There is also
a nicely formated PDF version that I created by scanning in and OCRing a
copy of the manual I had.

> Is there a good guide to programming for the Maria chip?

Curt Vendel has a PDF version of the original 7800 programmer's guide on
his Atari Musem website. He also has a technical document about the
internal operation of the MARIA chip. The documents are from a time when
the system was still called the 3600, but the text is identical to what
was later included with Atari's 7800 development system. If that's good
enough for you, you can only judge yourself.
