If you can dig up a copy of the workshop manual, it will tell you definitively which marks should line up with what. Different models use different marks.

Did you remember to short the service connector when checking the timing? There should be a connector that you plug a wire into (or even a paper clip) that tells the car's ECU not to fiddle with the timing so you can accurately check it and set it. Your results will be off if you don't do that.

I am used to earlier-generation Hondas (like my old 1990 CRX) so my advice may be out-dated for the VX. Hopefully it's not all that different.
