Summary0016902: Add ability to define character set/encoding through file naming Mask
DescriptionIt would be useful for both Auto-Organize (Files) and Sync (and Auto-Tag from Filename) if the user has a way to limit quickly what characters are allowed to be used on filename creation (and tag extraction).

This would provide the user, especially for Sync, to remove characters when creating folder/filenames that the device doesn't support.

[FileMappings] in ini provides this only partly as the user needs to add each individual character to be converted, which is too tedious a solution.

This has been raised a few times over the years. I do assume this is not required for most main stream devices (portable players, storage, network storage), but would be handy for certain devices.

 $ASCII(<tag>) like Peke suggest would be the user-side implementation. The I assume in code you'd have a function for that.
