Achinese is an alternate (perhaps former) spelling for Acehnese, which the article ought to somehow take into account.

I changed They are of Malayan stock to They are of Malayan ancestry because stock when refering to people seems somewhat perjorative or at the very least too close for comfort to race theory. If the new version is not strictly true, someone should edit it to be more precise. CyborgTosser (Only half the battle) 05:19, 9 September 2005 (UTC)

They are about 50,000 pure Acehnese in Malaysia (40% are Malaysian citizen). But lots of Northern Malays in the states of Kedah, Perlis and Perak have Acehnese blood. State of Kedah former Chief Minister, Sanusi Junid is of Acehnese origin. An actress, Wardina Safiyyah also has Acehnese blood, and most of her Acehnese relatives live in Meulaboh.

The correct spelling is Acehnese. Achinese (was the former English spelling which predated the formation of the nation of Indonesia). The articles should be changed to reflect this. Eagleswings 11:58, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
