Sometimes, i was confused with the name of my home town. It was originally called Yogyakarta, but in 2005 (i guess, i forgot it, sorry), there was a new name for this city, called Jogja with it's new slogan, Never Ending Jogja, so some people start changing this name into Jogja, and since many people didn't want to leave the old name, they start a new name as a result of a combination of both names, and come out as Jogjakarta. If you look on Jogja's government site, they have different name (URL is using Jogja, the title bar said Jogjakarta, and the flash site says Yogyakarta). So which one is correct? On my ID card, it's said Yogyakarta and i think most of ID said that also, since i have never seen an ID card which said Jogja or Jogjakarta up to now.
