Whatever drives the way artist/album/song are listed within the web interface.  I see one "Alice in Chains", and one "Alice In Chains" and I don't know what's driving the difference.  If it's tags, I can fix it.  Is it?  If so, and I fix it, how do I make the fix reflect itself in the UI?

It depends on your data source. ID3 tags, itunes, moodlogic, musicmagic,
playlists, cue sheets, and even filenames can all be sources for the db. It
depends on how you have made your collection.

if you do not use itunes, musicmagic or moodlogic, then forget about them.

if you have old playlists, that could be it.

if you have cue sheets, fix them.

if you have ID3 tags, get your favourite editor out.

if you have vacant tags, then look at the filenames because the guessTags
settings will use the filenames to guess what the data should be.
