Ken,

Read my "blurb" about multi-copy markers at the bottom of this page:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~dgarvey/DNA/hap_allele_freq2.html

This ambiguity concerning the alleles of multi-copy markers is the reason
that it doesn't make any sense to have separate graphs for DYS464a, DYS464b,
etc. Since we don't know which location they came from, all we can talk
sensibly about is the likelihood of seeing any given allele among the whole
set of four results.
