OK, I am not at ease with regEx, so, might be less elegant, but  this  
works too :

   repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines of fld "theText"
     repeat until last char line x of fld "theText" is not space
       delete last char of line x of fld "theText"
     end repeat
   end repeat

:-)

Best regards from Grenoble
