I'm afraid that I have no idea about how Windows XP stores it's tags :-(

If I remember correctly, then I simply looked at an image in a hex
editor and saw that the bytes looked like this


where 0's represent null bytes. My guess would be that this is a UTF-16
encoding of the data. PEL currently simply drops the null bytes, and
voila! the UTF-16 encoding becomes a Latin1 encoding. That will of
course break badly if your text is not encodable in Latin1 to begin
with, or if my guesswork is wrong :-)

Patches and testing from people using Windows is definitely needed here.
