Can I use 1.2 mm Dura-Ace inner with x.9 trigger shifters?

I have searched and searched through this and other forums and cannot get an answer to this question. I guess there are really 2 questions:
1. Will 1.2 mm inner cable work well with SRAM x.9 trigger shifters (they seem to be designed for 1.1 mm cable since that is what SRAM uses)?
2. Can I use Dura-Ace inners considering these are road cables? Are the ends the same for mtb and road cables?

I plan on using sp41 housing and although there is no consensus, I think I will avoid teflon.

Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am getting tired of trying to figure this out.

Road and MTB cable ends are the same (except some older Campy and 3speed stuff) for shifters, and 1.2mm DA cable will work just fine, so will DA housing.
