You really want your UPC values, eh? :)

So the UPC value is not found by Tellico using amazon.com but is found for 
amazon.de? The different Amazon locales do provide different results, that's 
just the way they do things.

If you could provide a few UPC examples which fail to give results as you 
would expect, that would help me with testing. Not just the titles, as you 
gave for "Taj Mahal" but the actual UPC values themselves, along with the 
titles. Just a couple would be enough. Maybe one or two that work 
successfully as well.
