FIDs are made of 28 bits - ie the object number, plus 4 bits at the bottom which refer to the type. *0 is the actual object data - in the case of a playlist, this is 4 bytes per playlist entry which is simply the fids of the items it contains.
The *1 files are the tag files, which are plain text and have fields, eg:
type=tune length=xxxxx title=Country House artist=Blur genre=Indie year=1997
(length refers to the length of the *0 file). User tags currently can't be added with the software (actually... maybe on the linux stuff) but are stored and preserved by downloaders (pc & linux).Contributed by Paul
