      You're right! It has to be Kappa - all I can think of is
      that maybe I read Greek "K" as "X"

      LOL! OK, OK, maybe my position was a bit "pompous" but I
      found early on that I was resenting modern "interlopers"
      made up from borrowed stars.

      That's all true - but have you considered that the
