    In the plist you will see all the site you visited and below each url there will be;

    <sting>.....url.......
    <key>D</key>
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    <key>title</key>

    Try deleting this section of the site you want gone.

    No prob! You can always make one. Most people just go to settings or safari to delete history.
