Generally replacing two and more white space signs with a tabulator.
We agreed to standardize the SID codes -> "IFPI ????/?"
That means: All letters are capitalized, no italic writing, no additional white spaces besides of the one in-between "IFPI" and the second code part which is 4-5 chars long. This writing is easier for researches. The rest of the ring has to be like is.
Update (2012-11-03): Further, Mould SID Codes (especially PS2 once) have in some cases no "IFPI" string pressed, these have to be expanded with a leading "IFPI" string and get added to the "Mould SID Code" field.
