    document body and replace in one line

    Hi,

    im trying to do a few things, but basically i would like to combine document body and replace in one line

    the original line is..

    Code:
     var body = document.body, range, sel;
    and im trying to get rid of the double white space so i would like to do something like this

    Code:
    var body = document.body.replace(/\s+/g," "), range, sel;
    but of course it fails..

    is it just a syntax issue?

    add the css "*,* * {white-space: normal !important;}", grab document.body.innerHTML, then remove the CSS.
