The Policy and Standards Division of the Library of Congress has received a revision proposal for the Malay (in Jawi-Arabic script) ALA-LC romanization table from LC's Jakarta Office. The proposal recommends the addition of two characters as well as a new note to reflect changes in current Malay printed materials.
The revision proposal http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/roman_malay_proposal.pdf (PDF, 129 KB) highlights all additions and changes. A separate document http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/roman_malay_explanation.doc (DOC, 43 KB) enumerates changes in the revision proposal.
