oh for the record, if you are editing tags for a sony walkman, the
walkman cannot read standard UTF-8 encoding properly, so you need to
select (I think..) either the Western (ISO-8859-1) or the Western
(ISO-8859-15). I think. Experiment with them, I'm on the wrong pc atm so
I can't check it out.
Just thought I'd let you all know cos that annoyed me for aages until I
found out the problem :p
