b) Firefly on the Linux box accessing p.s. You can probably manually iconv the itunes music library.xml from utf-8 to latin1 as a quick workaround.
Tried this but didn’t work.

IMHO octal 204, 226 and 234 don’t seem to correspond to any encoding table!?!
So without knowing to which encoding I should convert the XML, it is unlikely that it will work 🙁
