  Sample input:
"file:" & Get( DocumentsPath ) & "index.html"
  Sample output:
/Users/gjermund/Documents/index.html

or the equivalent of: C:\Users\gjermund\Documents\index.html for Windows.

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

The windows part is not tested; might need a minor tweak, I just wrote what I expected to be correct off the top of my head.
