Oh yes, that's true, forgot to include this. It would take a single 
Trim(sOut) before the function returns.

Your race was a bit about speed. Using Replace() over and over might be 
the drawback here, as it will certainly use a loop internally doing more 
or less the same as my function does. The same applies to regex, and 
even heavier.

But I agree, the other solutions are more elegant than mine :)
