Let me first congratulate you on the launching of The Jakarta Post on Sunday. I particularly enjoyed the piece on Lake Patengan. I was reading from article to article when, to my horror and disbelief, I came to the crossword in Bahasa Indonesia.

To a British person like myself the Sunday crossword is a time for relaxing and enjoyment. If I could read Bahasa Indonesia then I would have chosen to read a newspaper in Bahasa Indonesia and not in English.

I sincerely hope that you will correct the obvious error of putting a Bahasa Indonesia crossword into an English language newspaper.
