Listing multiple genres in the Genre tag field
I have been using other software for casual listening, and this software supports multiple entries in an ID3 tag field with the use of a semicolon. I have noticed that some other software I'm using is stripping the semicolon from the fields in which it is used. Does Beatunes support the use of semicolons to designate multiple listings for ID3 tag fields, and if not could this be implemented?

There is no special support for semicolons. What if you want to enter a semicolon, i.e. if the value you want to add contains a semicolon?

That is what I have been doing for my tags, because I have other software
that supports and parses the semicolon.

No... I was wondering how your other software supports semicolons in the tags, i.e. semicolons that appear naturally, that you don't want to use as delimiter.

Oh! The software in question (MusicBee and MediaMonkey) only show the
semicolon when editing tags. In the main interface of the software, they
treat it as a divider and list the track(s) in multiple categories based on
each entry between semicolons. So if I have tracks tagged as "Breaks;
Techno", it lists those tracks in both genre fields.
