Sorry if this is off-topic but I have tried to get registered direct  
on the bibdesk mailing list but no joy to date.

Basically everything works fine with the latest Bibdesk 1.2.7 and  
when I use the 'New Publications From Web' feature (select text from  
the chosen web page in the left window and enter it into the files on  
the right by double clicking the filed or using the shortcut), then  
Add or Add and Close. This works fine for most of the web sites I  
have visited over the last couple of days. But for a couple of sites  
this results in a repeatable crash.

The two sites are the British Library catalogue




On these sites I am searching for a book, then simply entering the  
subsequent url into the URL field of Bibdesk as usual then  
highlighting text and doing the above. But when I come to Add and  
Close the window closes but Bibdesk crashes.

So far I have checked Permissions, trashed the bibdesk .plist and  
reinstalled Bibdesk. I have also trashed the safari .plist and  
reinstalled Safari (I am using PPC G4 with 10.4.7). None of this has  
resolved the issue.

Like I said it works on other web sites no problem (mostly simple  
html sites). I can copy the text into Clipboard and enter from that  
and copy across from the web page in Safari to the fields with a New  

Before I try to report this I wondered if anyone had had similar  
issues or whether some sites could cause this (type of fonts used,  
styles, copy protection?)
