Everyone asks “how do you pronounce XO? Is it

  1. like “ch’o” in  “xocon” (nahuatl)
  2. like “so” in “roxxor” (1337)
  3. like “zo” in “xoom”
  4. like “show” (chinese)
  5. “ixo” (spanish)
  6. “sideways xo-person”

To answer you all at once, I have advice best embodied in a poem.  It is a work in progress that has been passed from person to person for generations… starting perhaps with G. Nolst Trenité (1870-1946).  Points in contention are in bold, but the advice at the end is timeless.
