Hi guys I have got a bit of a problem here with a Mac. I am try to launch iWeb but can't because I am being faced with this error message " The application iWeb quit unexpectedly. The problem may have been caused by the SFWordProscessing plug-in.

Does anyone know what I could try to get this up and running. I have tried deleting the temporary preference file which did not work, I have also tried deleting a font which might have associated itself with the error which did not work. I am beginning to think weather I should re install iWeb ...

Thanks for your time guys.

Eagle.

Everything Mac !!!

The error does indeed appear to be linked to a font. A quick search suggests different fonts - some say Hoefler, some say any Oblique fonts. Here's a start - open up Font Book, select all the fonts and go to File > Validate Fonts. What do you get?

See here for more info.
