Endianness or byte order is the order of bytes in a multi-byte value like a word. Systems are usually referred to as either 'little endian', where the least significant byte (lsb) comes first, or 'big endian', where the most significant byte (msb) comes first.

More non-ROM hacking specific information can be found at Wikipedia's Endianness article.
