Can someone translate the following English text into Russian?

"
Please write clearly and in capital letters.

Give an example of the word "XXX" in a sentence.

What is the nearest one-word equiavlent to "XXXX" in Russian?

To the best of your knowledge, give a detailed definition of "XXX". Be as specific as possible. For example. can it be a noun/verb/adjective or all? What is it's physical description?

What is the difference between "XXX" and the Russian equivalent that you suggested? For example, in which situations would you use "XXX" instead of the Russian equiavlent."

forever grateful-Micha

Misha:

If this is how someone signed a letter to you, "XXX" stands for "kisses."

"OOO" stands for "hugs."

So far as I know, in English one just says "Love, hugs and kisses."

(While one normally writes "XXX OOO XXX," "hugs and kisses" is the normal collocation, not "kisses and hugs.")

Does this answer your question?

XXX is a symbol for the Dutch city of Amsterdam. Theories about its origins differ, but it is also a label given to movies not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America for showin' poon-tang.
