a frame in id3 can have multiple values via a null character, (I think its called). so iTunes abuses the comment frame. it leaves the first value for comments, then adds a second, hidden value for the numbers it translates into soundcheck (their RG) values/tags.

normally, to winamp, u don't see these 2nd, third, etc values. the comment field may appear completely blank, but hidden multiple values can exist, for just about any field.

I think mp3tag lets you enter them via double backslash or something like that. eventually I want to try to figure out how to use mp3tag to identify all my files with multiple values so I can expunge them, as I don't as of yet knowingly use them.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
