<Sarcasm>How could I possibly know that you're not talking about "the key"? I'm one of those backward "US Americans" so burdened with incorrect customs that anything I say should immediately be dismissed.</Sarcasm>

You do realize the original poll never mentioned using the "national US-American custom" of the "x" symbol. Nor did I ever support using the "x" symbol. My vote was for the "*" symbol in order to avoid ambiguity with the symbols used for dot and cross products.

Interestingly, the still unnamed handheld calculator also uses the "*" for "the key".
