@Rob – I'm on OSX 10.6.8, so I could not test it.
Just an idea:
I'm totally new to AppleScript, so this might not work in AS Editor 2.5.1
Thanks, I think that might work but with all the extra " ¬ I'm not sure it's any more writable. I think for now I'll store a copy in a text editor
Rob, I think the issue is related to a preference in AS Script Editor itself.
Go to Prefereces > Editing and uncheck the option "Escape tabs and line breaks in strings".
That should solve it. Please try and tell us.
Thanks, that worked.
