Fix a search error in iTunes AppleScripts Apps
There is an error in three of the iTunes Applescripts. The script adds new script info to the existing search string, rendering searches after the first search impossible. This applies to the SEARCH CDNOW by ARTIST, SEARCH CDNOW by ALBUM, and SEARCH CDNOW by SONG TITLE scripts.

Here is a change to the scripts provided to me by Paul W:

If you open the script up in script editor there is an easy change. Change line 2 to: property dest_URl : "http:..... from property search_url : "http:.... and change the bit that creates the search (about line 36) to set the search_URL to (dest_URL & encoded_name) from set the search_url to (search_url & encoded_name).This change will work on all three scripts.

[Editor's note: I have not tried this myself.]

For OmniWeb users

In order to use these scripts w/OmniWeb (I'm running sp44), simply change the string that reads "Internet Explorer" to "OmniWeb"
