id3v1 Genre List

Will someone be so kind as to provide/pinpoint a complete, up-to-date list of Winamp-defined ID3v1 genres (along with their corresponding byte values)? 'Preciate it.

In case anybody's wondering...

...see Appendix A of the Id3v2.3 standard at http://www.id3.org/id3v2.3.0.txt.

By the way, this was for a .NET implementation of a full-featured and up-to-date Id3v1-2 tagging library. (Most programs out there - including Winamp, many players/taggers, and Windows - use tagging components that are three years obsolete now.)

The list of Genres at id3.org is missing a few values which were apparently added by Nullsoft after their document was created. The ID3v2.3 spec says that the WinAmp Genre codes only go up to 125, but from what I can tell they actually go up to 147. See below for details.

Funny; I found out about the "missing" Genres because of an ID3v1.1/v2.3 Tag Reader/Writer library for .NET I wrote. A beta tester spotted the fact that when he put in "Indie" as a Genre in WinAmp, my library threw a warning saying that 131 was invalid. Well, obviously it wasn't invalid, I just didn't know that there were Genre codes above 125.

Question alphabetization of genre list

Is there a way to have the genre pull-down for the ID3v1 tags alphabetized? I usually know the genre I am looking for but end up spending half a minute, somtimes more, looking for it.

Thanks!
