    If the ID3 artist tag in a MP3 has a foward slash (/) the embedded cover art in the MP3 is not displayed.

    For example see the jpg attached.

    The / is rendered on the screen as a | but the coverart is absent.
    This occurs in all views (list, icons, big icons, filmstrip).

    AW: ID3 tag Cover Art not displayed when ID3 has a "/" in Artist Name tag.

    maybe, thats a little bit offtopic. but i have the same issue with in my big music database.
    the most of my personal 'Genre' have the letter '/' build in. see:


    this is something I've noticed a long time ago. MePo shows me only the last or the first word on.
    so unfortunately I can not use the view 'Genre'. what is important to me.

    what can i do?
