textedit adds quotes around text that contains space. How to avoid this?

    Each time the Live set is saved the text in the textedit has a set of double quotes placed around the original string. After a couple of saves there are nested quotes involving \" the resulting mess is ugly and unreadable by what comes next in the processing sequence. I'm trying to replace the contents by stripping the added characters ( with a js) but this is turning out to be difficult for reasons I'm having difficulty grasping. This must be a common issue, is there a standard way to handle this situation? thanks

      Made it work. Was able to remove the quotes (with a js object) and (re)set the text each time the textedit is banged. If anyone wants the details I'll post it here.
