The official website is currently down, however this url still accessible from google cache:*.go.id&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=id&client=firefox-a

but the real url is:

The document states that GMT +7 (jakarta time) is Waktu Indonesia Barat (WIB), GMT +8 is Waktu Indonesia Tengah (WITA), and GMT +9 is Waktu Indonesia Timur (WIT) Thank you for your attention.

Perhaps that's wrong as well? Do you have a reference (URL) to an
official document stating Jakarta's time zone?

Would you mind sending that to tz at elsie.nci.nih.gov as well (CC'ing
