The main hardware side problem I see is that my non-graphic Sqbx doesn't
handle Latin-1 character sets well, and lots of classical music was written
by foreigners with funny characters in their names.

I have 2 (soon 3) non-graphic SqueezeBoxes and a lot of French songs with
accented characters such as “Cette année là – Claude François” and that sort
of thing… they display fine on the screen of my Squeezeboxes.

PS: Going back to the original thread I agree with what someone else wrote
here that we should be using the MP3 V2 tags for Composer, etc.
