Why doesn't Concertina translate the ABCs from Fiddler's Companion?

The tunes in the Fiddler's Companion aren't numbered. Concertina.net only handles one tune at a time, but for some reason it still expects a number. All you have to do is put "X:1" at the top, eg:

X:1
T:Dr. Gilbert's
M:4/4
L:1/8
R:reel
K:G

It looks like Andrew has corrected this problem in the current version of Fiddler's Companion at http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/index.html.   (I've added a link to the new site to the abc resources thread at the top of this page.  The new version has a lot more tunes included, however it doesn't seem to have a working search function so I still use both sites). -Steve W.

I always choose the version of a particular tune from the 'fiddlers companion' because, to my mind, the abc's which I have downloaded always seem to be a more accurate version than the ones offered by 'the session' website.

I wonder if anyone else has noticed this ?
