Often the word "dia" shows up as "ia". Is this an informal pronoun or is there a misspelling in the question?

Dia = Ia. 'Dia' could only be used for he/she, While 'Ia' could also be used for inanimate objects, and also 'Ia' sounds more poetic.

"Dia menulis surat" can be often interpreted as "S/he writes letters". It would be more accurate if it is written as "Dia menulis sebuah surat."
