16550 vs 16550A
Early 16550 chips had a bug, which allowed them to only really function as 16450 chips, this was fixed with the 16550A and later revisions.

...and yet I have no ambition to learn the Wiki syntax to link the silly thing into the article. It's up at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Exar16550onItronixPCB.jpg if somebody with a clue wants to handle that. Thanks. Myself248 08:14, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
It would be nice to have the dates they were first released listed somewhere.
