cleaning up text subtitles for enoce(and after effects)

Hello,

A company send us some subtitles .txt files.
We are planning to use this with adobe encore.
We also using some of the subtiles in After Effects(with a script) where we need to integrate it in a specific lay out/animation.

As we understood, encore and the script can import those files
when files look like this:

3 00:00:45:01 00:00:49:22 Nous avons dû donner
tout ce que nous avions avec nous.

However the ones we got look like this:

00:00:45:01 00:00:49:22
Nous avons dû donner
tout ce que nous avions avec nous.

Some of the videos are 3 min long, but others almost an hour.

So we need to put a NR before every timecode(see example: 3), remove a tab between each timecode, remove an enter and add a space.

Its obvious we need a text editor.
What editor program could we use to achieve(accetly) this?
Has anyone had a similar problem. What exactly did you do?

MacPro Intel Quad Core 17G Ram

MacBookPro Intel Duo Core 2G Ram

Cs5 Production Premium
Cinema4D 11.5
Final Cut Studio 2

I like Notepad++

I do not see it in the web page, which is wrapping and changing what you posted, but you seem to say it is a tab instead of a space?

In any event, Notepad++ will show such characters. Select the tab (for example - this will put it into the "find" blank), Ctrl-H (for replace), and then specify in the "replace with" a space.

However, the line break in the subtitle itself may be intentional.
