speeding a handler?

Hey, I'm glad it helped!

To get another slight speed increase, you can move your new line of code 
outside the repeat loop (below the loop)  - but instead of:
   replace """ with empty in tLine

It would say:
   replace """ with empty in tNewText

One time for the whole list instead of once per line.
