I am trying to get the values form a Textarea, replace any returns with '. ' and also ensure that there are no duplicates (ie) '.. ' or '. . '

So far I am having weird results. blink.gif


ProductOI = document.getElementById('ProductOI').value;
ProductOI = ProductOI.replace(/\n/g, '\. ');
ProductOI = ProductOI.replace(/\.\. /g, '\. ');
ProductOI = ProductOI.replace(/\. \. /g, '\. ');

The 'NewLine' code is working but the other two for some reason are not working as I am expecting them too. blink.gif
Each line of code run independently seems to work as expected, but when combined it fails.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
