The transcription was prepared under less than ideal conditions, and under severe pressure of time.  It cannot therefore be guaranteed to be wholly accurate.  It has been substantially edited in preparation for inclusion in the MCP.   The National University of Singapore plans to make images of the original Jawi text available on line, and when these images become available, they will be linked to the MCP.
