As a native speaker of romanian language i can say that "apar pe ziar" IS NOT CORRECT!!!!! (angry). "Apar in ziar" rather

Ah, they're still working out the kinks! :) For what it's worth, the English is unnatural as well. It should be "appear IN the newspaper."

Unless they appear standing on the newspaper - placed in a doorway to collect the mud from boots for example! I agree really. 'tis a silly sentence!

Unless they're referring to the front page of course and although we know it's an uncommon and rarely used phrase in English it may well be a well used phrase in Romania(n).
