I just checked; this only appears to happen with the "webpage" type,  
probably because it's not a type recognized by the style I use  


reveals that this is used by urlbst; the TeX FAQ has more info on  
using urlbst.  Changes to "Author" in standard BibTeX types are  
recognized by the TeX preview, so this doesn't appear to be a BibDesk- 
specific problem.

What changes to previewtemplate.tex are made?
