getID3() handles all tags correctly. That is, getID3() handles all tags according to specification. Vorbiscomments and APEtags are UTF-8, so no problems there, unless your files are incorrectly tagges. ID3v1 is ISO-8859-1, which includes all Swedish characters, so no problems there unless your mp3 files have been tagged using CP850 or CP865. ID3v2 is UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1, so no problems there either.
