By blow up, I assume Robin means (in some javascript console, like Chrome's dev tools):

var x = {"ID" : "the citation"}; 
x["ID"]; 
//returns what is expected

Throws no syntax errors. That's the easiest way to check.

I also then check that the whole bliblo.js works using the method above before doing the pull request.
