I'm not sure about 8086 processor. There are reserved bits 15..12 in EFLAGS, but do they set to one or cleared to zero? I've read that they are cleared in one book and that they're set in another one. What is correct?
And should I test the cpu at all or it is enough to mention it in minimal system requirements?

I can't recall the specifics, but these two articles will give you a wealth of information.

It would be really cool, if there was a fasm-journal, say 4 time a year, like the assembly-journal, as there was some great info in it.
I think that old style looks great Cool.
