Actually I take that back. If Pages places an extra space after EVERY
char, so there are two spaces between words instead of one, there is a
space after the last word on a line but before the carriage return,
and another space after the carriage return and before the first char
of a new line, then it should be just a simple matter of:

--assuming the very first char is invalid
put true into tOdd
repeat for each char tChar in tData
  if (tOdd = true)
    put tChar after tOutput
    put false into tOdd
    put true into tOdd
  end if
end repeat
put tOutput into fld "WhereEver"

If there is not an extra space after EVERY char, then it becomes much
more difficult.
