I'm quite new to MP3Tag ... what a great program! So useful. I have quite a music collection on my player (Sony NWZ A-15)and only recently learned about the value of doing some proper housekeeping on the tags.
Here's my question (I've done some searching across the forums but can't find a quick answer)
I noticed a little while ago that a CD I imported had automatically tagged the ARTIST field this way:
Mark Knopfler\\\\Emmy Lou Harris
The use of the backslashes seems to have the effect of listing the artist names separately in my player but I cannot be sure it always works that way (for some albums it does not seem to work).
I also noticed that the ALBUMARTIST field occasionally includes a semi-colon. I can't find an example now but after a few experiments I cannot work out what is the effect of the semi-colon.
I also noticed that the backslash is rejected by the ALBUMARTIST field.
My question: is there a handy guide to the syntax of tags? Put another way, is there a handy guide to the use of special characters in tags and their effects?
Thanks for any advice.
