"I" don't come after "K" in the alphabet:loco:ok, if "l" is skipped, since "l" comes AFTER "k", it would not move "k" up in sequence from Nov. to Oct. It's still the 11th letter of the alphabet. Would not skipping "l" simply mean that the next letter used is "m", following "k", for a total of 12 letters (a through m, minus l)? This assumes the date code starts in January. I'm confused.
