If you use Winboard you can receive an error viewing some files; this because Winboard cannot understand layered parenthesis.
For example: ((this (causes) an error) on winboard). 

The problem can be fixed by putting "{}" around the whole variation-comment part and then the file works properly. 
This program automatically fixes this. 

Please note that the program it replaces now also all ChessBase tags as appropriate:

symbols after the move
$1 {!} 
$2 {?} 
$5 {!?}
$6 {?!}
$3 {!!}
$4 {??}
$22 {zugzwang}
$8 {only move}
$18 {+-}
$16 {+/-}
$14 {+/=}
$11 {=} 
$13 {unclear}
$15 {=/+}
$17 {-/+}
$19 {-+}
$44 {with compensation}
$132 {counterplay}
$36 {initiative}
$40 {attack}
$138 {zeitnot}
$32 {development advantage}
$146 {Novelty}

from here symbols go before the move
$145 {RR}
$142 {is better}
$143 {is worst}
$144 {is equal}
$140 {with the idea...}

It runs on DOS (windows works, too) so the filenames can't be windows filenames- so for example: "corso_pgn.pgn" is actually "corso_~1.pgn" (because dos filenames can only have 8 letters).
