Section 2 says:

Malay is primarily written in
      Latin script today, but the earlier, Arabic-script-based, Jawa
      form is still in use

It should say:

Malay is primarily written in
      Latin script today, but the earlier, Arabic-script-based, Jawi
      form is still in use

Notes:

I don't know this script myself but it seems that, in english, it is always called Jawi (Jawa is the old name for the island it came from, so Jawi = script from Jawa).

This script (actually a variant of the arabic one) does not seem to be in ISO 15924 so I cannot offer an authoritative reference.
