  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  hexit  /hek'sit/  n.  A  hexadecimal  digit  (0-9,  and  A-F  or  a-f). 
  Used  by  people  who  claim  that  there  are  only  _ten_  digits,  dammit 
  sixteen-fingered  human  beings  are  rather  rare  despite  what  some  keyboard 
  designs  might  seem  to  imply  (see  {space-cadet  keyboard}).
