There have been two recent messages about a hybrid sign that most of 
us represent by the letter x. Presumably this looks similar to an x.

The symbol that the two Europeans have used shows as a diamond for 
me.  I copied it to a text editor and changed it to a few dozen 
fonts, all of which showed a diamond.

What font is it that you are using to show an almost-x ?
