To remove leading and trailing white space (space, tab...)

> repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines in tTemp

           put word 1 to -1 of line x of tTemp into line x of tTemp
>  end repeat


>        if line x of tTemp is quote then delete line x of tTemp
[use]    filter tTemp without quote

>        if line x of tTemp is "" then delete line x of tTemp
[use]    filter tTemp without empty

> 	replace "/>" with "" in tTemp
> 	replace "yweather:" with "" in tTemp
> 	replace quote&space with quote&cr in tTemp -- Did the trick
> 	repeat for 5 -- Lazy way to catch leading spaces
>       		repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines in tTemp

> 	if last line of tTemp is "" then delete last line of tTemp
