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

Converts a FileMaker text string to a UTF-8 string. May be nested with "Convert_Text_to_Base64" to encode FileMaker text string to Base64 for use in URLs as "Convert_Text_to_Base64 ( Convert_Text_to_UTF8 ( string ) )". The combined action of the two custom functions performs with double speed as "AscIIToBase64" (also briandunning.com) and handles all legal char. values in UTF-8.
