Converting a 16-bit number into decimal format. Assume the low 8-bits in X and the high 8-bits in Y. Also assume at the beginning of the pattern table (whichever one is going to be used for displaying these numbers) has numbers 0 to 9 repeated a few times. You will have tables DL0, DL1, DH0, etc for converting one digit into the decimal (each table is 256 bytes long).

	CLC
	LDA DL0,X
	ADC DH0,Y
	STA <DIGIT0
	CMP #10
	LDA DL1,X
	ADC DH1,Y
	STA <DIGIT1
	CMP #10
	LDA DL2,X
	ADC DH2,Y
	STA <DIGIT2
	CMP #10
	LDA #0
	ADC DH3,Y
	STA <DIGIT3
	CMP #10
	LDA #0
	ADC DH4,Y
	STA <DIGIT4

If the numbers are not at the beginning of the pattern table, you can alter the tables for converting the high 8-bits into decimal, and change #10 into the different number by the bias of the carry that is used in this case.
