Thank you to both AndyM and DaleDe. For what I need, I'm finding Ebook Tidy does a smash-up job - and I don't have to learn regular expression programming!

There's a bit of a learning curve but they offer a very flexible way of dealing with problem texts.

Have a look at the tutorial here.

I have, on my system Atlantis Word Processor and Word 2002 if anyone has a script for one of those.

In the MobileaRead Wiki on the conversion page is a link to Stingo's Word Macro. I use it a lot and it turns hard returns into great text. If you already have Word then the total cost is $0.

Try the AEdiX Suite. It's a very flexible editor and the search/replace has RE support. I use it for coding, but it's fine for generic text editing as well.

Just don't use word to create HTML files from text the results are pretty awful.
