If I recall correctly, the 18Fxxx(x) chips are 16-bit chips, hence PIC16 architecture
the 16Fxx(x) chips are 14 bit, supported by the PIC architecture port

Anyone who knows better, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Does this mean that PIC16Fxxx in general is supported, plus the ones
listed below as PIC18Fxxx(x)?
Or does the "PIC16" only refer to the PIC18 series (makes no sense?)...
Also i am a bit confused because the PIC18F6520 (for example) is not
a 16 bit processor. In fact, none of
the PIC16F.. and PIC18F.. series seems to be... (according to the
Microchip page, only the 24F, 24H and
dsPIC30 and dsPIC33 series are 16 bit processors).

I'd be happy about a bit of clarification :)
