Thank you for your response. I used the Wiki page on music nfo's as a guide. I create the nfo files in notepad or gEdit depending on which platform I am using when I add the music files to my library. If the artist is listed on Musicbrainz, the nfo file just contains the url to the artist's page. If they are not listed there or I want to add additional information, my nfo files contain the following text:


Code:
<artist>
  <name>Bodyslam</name>
  <genre>Thai Rock</genre>

  <biography>The band is best known by the unique voice of the leading vocalist, Athiwara Khongmalai, and the band's live performances. Formed in 2002 from members of the band La-On (ละอ่อน), Bodyslam has gone on to be one of the most sucessful Thai rock bands.</biography>

I have been in contact with Dave and hope to give him the information he needs in the next day or so.
