and after are now being accepted for DXCC.  Previously rejected cards 
may be returned for DXCC credit. There has been a correction on the date
for Croatia and Slovenia that was in the news release dated 25th November.
It was announced that Croatia (9A) and Slovenia (S5) were added to the 
list for QSOs made 26th May 1991 and after.  The correct date is their 
independence day, 26th June 1991. The DXCC Desk will accept cards after
