I'm curious what mandates regEx?

if the means is not an issue in reaching the goal ,  doesn't  
"replace" work for you?

This is obvious, but for the record:

function wipeQuotedSpaces tText
	put (quote & " ") into tOpenSpace
	put ( " " & quote) into tCloseSpace
	replace tOpenSpace with quote in tText
	replace tCloseSpace with quote in tText
	return tText
end wipeQuotedSpaces
