    The “clean” solution is of course to edit the tags till they fit but it seems I dont manage to get all small bugs out of it, so I tend to see double entries like

    Bon Jovi
    bon jovi

    –> there should be an option to tell it to be case insensitiv perhaps? Or something like a case conversion as e.g.

    case = first capitalized
    (which would force all entries to be first char upper case, rest lower case)

    Also special chars usually lead to these double entries, as e.g.

    Die Ärzte
    Die Aerzte

    Some option like

    convert = ae/ä, Ae/Ä, Ue/Ü, …

    could help making that easier by making it treat ae and ä as the same char.

    The simple case will fall out as part of the db org. The unicode case might be harder, but I’ll look at that.

    Unless you were unforunate enough to have any tracks by Aerosmith of course 😆
