I am preparing the Baibala Hemolele, or the Hawaiian Bible, for compilation. I have already completed the New Testament and the books of Moses. But the OT poetic books are getting very labor intensive because of all the poetical sections. Each poetic verse has a space and then a carriage return (or some kind of line break) at the end and the next line begins with several spaces. I need a easy way to select the space, break, and several spaces and replace them with a single space so that I end up with the whole verse on one line. I've tried using the replace function on several editors but for some reason it doesn't work. An example of the problem text can be found at http://baibala.org/cgi-bin/bible?e=d...2.2.5&toc=0&vv=
Anybody know of a text editor that can do it? Or some other trick?
