I'm a little confused ... how does this affect the album art?

I can't remember exactly what my CD ripper does; it does change some
filenames because of the "dubious" characters in a artist/album/song
name.
What confuses me further is why this is a problem - I have some slightly
renamed files - so I still know what they are - and the correct
information in the ID3 tags.
