Crossword Genius

Farewell notice that is for all to see (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

adieu

Here is my best explanation:

'farewell' is the definition.

(adieu is a kind of farewell)

'notice that is for all to see' is the subsidiary indication.

'notice' becomes 'ad'.

'that is' becomes 'ie' ('i.e.' can be a synonym of 'that is').

'for all to see' becomes 'u' (universal dvd certificate).

'ad'+'ie'+'u'='adieu'

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for adieu that I've seen before include "Goodbye, mon ami!", "Goodbye to the French", "Farewell to France", "Bye", "French farewell", "Comment on leaving", "Gallic goodbye", "Parting greeting", "vale" and "Goodbye in France".)
