I've discovered that the problem with Windows Media Player is related to the de.vdheide.mp3 Java API rather than the presence of Chapter Frames. Therefore I don't have any evidence to suggest that there would be a problem with Chapter Frames in version 2.3 tags. If anyone knows what the problem may be with the Java API can they please let me know.
