Maybe it was taglip api documentation...
But it's reasonable to store ONLY 8bit encoded strings in ID3v1, so that old
applications on other OS'es (like win95/98/Me) can read this strings (winamp
still doesn't support unicode :) and that is why I asked to place an option to
select encoding for ID3v1 tag
it will be better to write id3v2 tags in UTF-8 with first byte set to $03 (from
id3v2.4.0). New players understand this bit (if $00 was written instead
conversion latin->utf-8 has to be done, and instead of readable chars we'll see
something unreadable :)
