Here's a strange one for you.
I tag my music using Tag & Rename on my pc so that I can export my music onto my Xbox.
However, when I import it into iTunes, if ever there is a ' in the title it swaps it to a ?
For example "Don't look back in anger" becomes "Don?t look back in anger".
I've done a smart play list to find all songs with ? in the title and renamed them manually in iTunes, but does anyone know why they get changed in the first place?
Thanks.

Are the apostrophes in the originals "curly"? (aka "smart quotes" or "typographic quotes"). It may be that iTunes isn't recognizing certain "high-ascii" characters generated by Tag & Rename (or maybe Windows). What happens if you use a word like "naïve"? (funky Windows character code of Alt-0239, IIRC)
