When a script gets a line of text, the engine omits the end of line 
character(s) and returns only the text of the line itself. That is why 
the lines stay separated, since the line delimiters are left intact. (It 
works just like items; when you get an item from a string, the comma is 
not included.) Instead of working on each line, work on the entire block 
of text as a whole. You should be able to do it like this:

put URL ("file:" & tFilename) into tData
put "+"&CR&LF into tChars
replace tChars with space in tData
