OK, I'm just curios who was the smart guy who decided to drop German scharfes-s in $ascii()? Is it that hard to cover the common Western EU languages (ISO-8859-1) decently? Scharfes-s goes to ss, Vowel+umlaut goes to Vowel-e (eg ae, oe etc).

50 CDs ruined.

That's the ASCII standard.

Tagging of 50 CDs should be fairly easy to properly retag with first fixing the album/artist tags by release and then fixing the title tracks by once selecting all tracks and then editing the title tag track by track.
