The K fluorescence yields ω̄i of Ne ions with 0-6 L-shell vacancies (charge states KLi) have been calculated by computing term transition rates for initial multiplet states and statistically averaging individual multiplet fluorescence yields. We find ω̄i=0.0159, 0.0176, 0.0199, 0.0248, 0.0390, 0.0862, and 0.229 for i=0, 6. Existing measurements are critically reviewed and found to agree with present theoretical results once proper account is taken of the P4(KL6) intensity contained in the KL5 x-ray peak.
