Early Indonesian Scripts — Some Basics

A street sign in Bogor, Indonesia. The text is Indonesian; the script underneath is a modern form of Sundanese script developed in the 1990s but based on the Old Sundanese script used between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries. The man whose name appears on the sign, Saleh Danasasmita, was a scholar of Old Sundanese. ‘Jalan’ just means ‘road’ (or ‘walk, ‘street’, etc.).
