[plug] A question about using sed

I am trying to clean up a batch of html files using a series of sed 

Most of the commands I have used have been successful, but I find that 
they are leaving a lot of blank lines in the html files.

I have tried using the following command to remove the blank lines :

	sed -ie "s/^\s*$//i" *.html

But the blank lines persist - and sed does not return any errors.

What am I doing wrong ?

Or have I missed something ?
