Can anyone give me a clear explanation on what the difference is between UTF-16 and ISO-8859-1 ? I know that UTF supports Unicode, and the ISO version is for devices or whatnot that don't support Unicode...but what exactly does that all mean ? From some reading around, it seems like ISO would be the most tolerant, so why isn't that the default rather then UTF-16 ? Are there specfic pros/cons to using each format ?
I have a music jukebox that I'm interested in using, and I've found that it won't read the tags in UTF-16 but does in ISO. Before I resave my entire collection in ISO, I would like to understand the implications, if any, in doing so.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
