As I open iweb to make changes to a website everything works fine until I try to open a certain page. I web then crashes. If I try to delete this page it of course crashes before I can hit delete.

Apple Tech solved the issue. After ridding preferences and caches it still crashed. So the next easiest thing was create a new site and drag the pages that I wanted right down to the new page. I never touched the crashing page. I then went to the web and opened the website and drag what I could from the crasher page to the desktop.
THEN I deleted the old site which took a few minutes. I then renamed the new site to the old name. Saved it and published it to the web.

janp,

The same procedure - new document and copy contents from old - is standard practice with corrupt Microsoft Word documents.

The technique may well work with other applications. I regularly fix tif images that don't work properly in iPhoto by editing (in Photoshop) and doing a "Save As..." to overwrite the original, effectively replacing the "allegedly bad" contents.
