T A B L E o f H I G H M E M O R Y A R E A S E G M E N T : O F F S E T P A I R S Due to the fact that the Segment:Offset Addressing Scheme allows for only 65,536 segments (from 0000 to FFFFh), each byte in memory above the 1 MB boundary will have one less Segment:Offset combination that can be used to refer to its location as we move into each 16 byte paragraph above the boundary. When we reach the last paragraph of the HMA (High Memory Area), there's only one Segment:Offset pair that can be used to point to each of those 16 bytes.
