Mel (Soireb) | 224 comments I know that this is not what you were after but I fixed the diacritics from the description. They were showing as symbols.

Vicky (vnorthw) | 2420 comments There is no way to see which books were affected by this, we just have to fix them as we come across them.

As a side note, who ever thought "Spanish Title" = "English Title" was a good convention for title data? It drives me batty!
