Hi,

thanks for the response, but I don't think it would work...

let's go back to my example :
    my " beautiful " laundrette

if you replace tOpenSpace first, then you get :
    my "beautiful "laundrette

and then if you replace tCloseSpace, you get
    my"beautiful"laundrette

Thanks anyway,
JB
