Heteronuclear diatomic species

How do you draw the molecular orbital energy level diagram for 2 atoms that combine from different periods (as their valence electrons belong to different shells)?

We'd just need to label the bonds using the atoms' respective orbitals. For example, for the four single bonds in CCl4, the bond notation would be (C2sp3, Cl3p)
