4 bolt (104 BCD) chainring that is compatiable with a 10 speed chain??

Question:
Who makes a 4 bolt 104 BCD chain ring that is compatible with a 10 speed (campy) chain? A Single-speed ring is preferable.
~Thanks
Details:
Cross bike, can't run a road crank set (tried a compact) without frame interference
10 speed campy drive train in the rear, single ring in the front is the goal
currently using an LX crank set

My understanding is based on reading in the forums, so it may differ from the real world.

Any multi-speed chainring should work, since the inner width of the chain hasn't changed, just the outer. The difference with 10 speeds as far as chainrings is that the rings are closer together to make sure the chain doesn't slide in between them.

So, if you are going for a single chainring, knock yourself out... Only limitation is no Pista/Single Speed rings, as they are a bit thicker.
