Try this 

   put " +"&cr into regEx
  put line 1 to -1 of replaceText( vMyContainer&cr, regEx, cr) into
vMyNewContainer


--use the space+cr that you did before
-- vMyContainer&cr allows the last line to be a 'hit/match'
-- line 1 to -1  effectively deletes the trailing cr you don't want, but be
careful in the case that the last line of vMyContainer is actually empty and
you want to preserve this

Hope this helps
