           Summary: Selecting "Edit Html" tab in bloger fails
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jubal-webkit at cheeze.org

Version: WebKit-SVN-r27663

This bug crashes WebKit and Safari, and appears to be reproducible.

Not entirely sure which component this one falls into. I put 'forms' for now;
please change if that's incorrect.

In Blogger, in both vanilla Safari 3.0.3 and WebKit build r27663 (2007-11-10),
if I "edit" a blog post (edit = click on pencil icon, which puts me into a
forms view wherein I can select whizzy-wig editing or raw HTML editing), I find
that I am unable to select any other view excep the default, which is

(whizzy-wig = WYSIWYG = What You See is What You Get. Sorry if everyone reading
this bug knows what it means; I assume absolutely nothing about my audience.)

Please see the attached screenshot.

In the screenshot, one can see two tabs on the upper right-hand side of the
text-entry area. As I mentioned, the default editing mode is whizzy-wig, but
the "Edit Html" tab is focused -- and this is incorrect. The linked/underlined
"Compose" tab is the active mode and should be focused.

Now, I wish to edit the HTML code for this blog entry, and I click on "Edit
Html" tab. This action causes the browser to die/go away/crash. (I will repeat
the action after filing this bug, and formally send the crash report that way.)

There are two "bad" consequences of this bug:

1. I cannot edit Blogger posts in HTML mode using Safari/WebKit.

2. Attempting to edit causes Safari/WebKit to die.

I didn't find any related bugs for WebKit, and I have no access to Radar.

How to reproduce:

1. Use an existing Blogger account at blogger.com, or create a new account.
2. Choose the "Simple II" template. (This step may not matter because this bug
report is about Blogger in _editing_ mode, and I don't know if the template
matters in this view.)
3. Create a new blog post.
4. Type in some text.
5. Click the "Edit Html" tab.
