Default Monospace characters

Concerning this "monospace" issue - is one (in general) encouraged to use the "proportional spacing" font type, or are there some more sophisticated guidelines on this?

I ask because sometimes I see a lot of monospace ':' or '~' characters, mixed with the proportional spacing variants. IMHO this should be unified.

Replace monospace characters in the display title (line 1) wherever possible. The reason is that people who don't have Asian language packs installed could end up seeing garbage in the display titles otherwise. "~" should be "~", etc. That goes for spaces, too: " " should be replaced with " ".

If there's no equivalent then leave it, e.g. ☆

@blah: Does this ruleset also apply to (translated) tracklists and the notes field?

Generally, yeah. I'll split this discussion into a separate thread.

Edit: done!
