Subject: Re: [DNA] FTDNA reporting issues: what about 522- 523- ?

The ultimate source of the complication is that the CRS has five and one
half repeats there, so it's a matter of convention whether the motif is
considered to be AC or CA. It's best to think in terms of a deletion or insertion
of one or more pairs, but it makes it very awkward for computer matching
