Lisa is the appropriate written form. I’d like to offer some revisions to your statement on what defines a Macintosh XL.

There are four versions of the Apple Lisa. The Lisa 1, Lisa 2, Lisa 2/5, and Lisa 2/10. Macintosh XL generally refers to a Lisa 2/10 running the macOS. The Lisa 2 and Lisa 2/5 can be referred to as a Macintosh XL if they have the MacWorks Plus II (MW+II) PFG (Programable Frequency Generator) installed. This is not a ROM upgrade, this allows the Lisa to operate its floppy drive to the specifications of the Macintosh Plus. While there is a ROM upgrade that allows the Lisa to display square pixels (instead of rectangle pixels) it is not necessary for the Lisa to run the macOS.

In order for a Lisa to run SSW 7.5.5 it will need a few upgrades. The MW+II PFG allows the Lisa to run MacWorks Plus II which allows the support for up to 7.5.5. The Lisa will also need a XLerator which is an accelerator card that replaces the stock 5MHz processor. The XLerator comes in three varieties: 12Mhz, 16Mhz, and 18MHz. The XLerator also allows the Lisa to have up to 12MB of RAM. With these upgrades the Lisa is much faster than all classic compact Macintosh computers. The Lisa is a fascinating machine to study. It’s ability to function as a UNIX workstation/server, classic Macintosh, and run native Lisa software makes it vastly useful in many environments.

Lisa can have its ROM chip replaced (physically or virtually) with a Macintosh ROM. Mac OS 7.5.5 is its highest Mac OS version supported. When Lisa does Mac, it becomes a model named the "Macintosh XL" (XL = formerly Lisa ?). It's the slowest Mac model ever, 68000 CPU @ 5.0 MHz, it's slower than all debut Macintoshes.

Anybody know if Lisa is more appropriately written as "Lisa" or is "LISA" better?

SSW 7.5.5... on a Lisa? This is the first time I hear of this. Are there documented steps to achieving that somewhere?

I have updated this to include support for macOS 7.5.5 and 68K CPU. Tested on an Apple Lisa running macOS 7.5.5.
