Bug Description: There is a bug in Microsoft Works version 9.0 where trying to copy-paste certain html entities from firefox, e.g. the space character  , causes microsoft works to crash. Other html entities, such as ▼,
are copied normally as are all of the same snippets copied from internet explorer 8.
Microsoft Works: 9.0
Windows: Windows 7 Home Premium (I tried making Works emulate XP and Vista, but the error persisted)
Create a new text document
Copy in the html entity " " (without the quotes)
Save the text document as "test.html"
Open test.html in firefox
Select All (ctrl+ a)
Copy (ctrl + c)
Open Microsoft Works
Paste into a new document (ctrl + v)
A space character should be added to the document.
An error dialog pops up that says "Microsoft Works Word processor has stopped working" with a single button that says "close program"
I've seen this bug talked about elsewhere but never seen specific repro steps, so I hope this forum is the right place for this.
