Friends and experts,

In unix I can remove extra spaces from a plain text file using a sed
command like

sed s/' \{2\}/ '/g

and then outputting the result to a new file.

I'm not seeing a similar function in the macros list for Word for Mac 2008.

Disappointingly (but not unsurprisingly), Word's help returns "0 topics
found" for the search string 'remove extra spaces'. ; \

Any help much appreciated.
