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. Based on feedback from current users, a couple of additional changes to the table have been made, and the table has been renamed "Jawi / Pegon romanization table". The table's name change acknowledges that it covers more than simply the Malay language.
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, 48 KB) enumerates changes in the revision proposal.
