    When I look up album info for albums that are in Spanish, or recorded by
    artists with Spanish names (or other-than-English names with foreign
    characters), the special characters (tildes, accent marks, etc.) come across
    as similar to the following: [Adiós, Pampa Mía]. This should say [Adiós,
    Pampa Mía]. ANother example is [Peñaloza]. I don't know what this is
    supposed to be. I also had the same problem with Motley Crue (the umlauts on
    the [ö] and [ü] were a series of crazy characters). Is there some setting I
    need to change? I use WMP 11 (Final release) in English. I speak English, so
    I don't want to install a Spanish Version. Is this a Media Service Database
    problem, or is it my WMP?

  2. Any version should be able to handle data from any language, but I think
    there is an extra problem with the web interface to the database in this
    version. You may have to manually edit the downloaded data.
