Sorry about the uNOTE confusion... I was focused and just used the
reference from the OEM version. I was aware but had mentally excluded
the older Microcomputer Products Group/Components Group version.
If you look at the Memory Comparison table in this OEM uNOTE, it only
lists Block Mode for "JD/JE ONLY". Hence my comment about it not being
on the JB/JC.
