Any opcode that the CPU doesn't recognized is executed as a NOP as far as the CPU is concerned.

That makes sense (though I did not know that, so thx) but how does a non-std OpCode, which is treated as NOP, let HEPAX do things like remap portions of code? Is it simply a marker for other code to recognize and then act upon?
