Subject: Archaic terms for Indonesian island groups

A Wikipedia user has brought it to my attention that some of the terms for Indonesian islands used in the database are incorrect, archaic forms. The listings should be as follows.

  ID    -0610+10648    Asia/Jakarta    Java & Sumatra
  ID    -0002+10920    Asia/Pontianak    west & central Borneo
! ID    -0507+11924    Asia/Makassar    east & south Borneo, Sulawesi, Bali, Nusa Tenggara, west Timor
! ID    -0232+14042    Asia/Jayapura   western New Guinea, Maluku islands
