Take a look at the following article:

It describes how to decrypt (ssl encrypted) RDP traffic and how to identify keystrokes.

It's usually encrypted, but even if it weren't you'd not see and "X", because RDP is most likely transfering keycodes instead of characters. So I doubt you'll ever see it.
