   We can of course receive reports with either name (OT J or CSS).
But, please use "the full proper names" and do not make abbreviations
such as CSS090213.  If your spreadsheets (or any reporting software)
can not hold object names longer than 10 characters, we strongly urge 
rewriting the program.  When your program absolutely requires
an abbreviation, a coordinate-based abbreviation is less confusing.
