Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
Replaces accented characters, ligatures, and a few special characters with their unaccented versions.
Useful when you need a straight ASCII version of a string, or when you are exporting to an app that does not properly handle character encoding (in my case, it was USPS Click-N-Ship for Business, which uses UTF8 everywhere except when printing out International Labels -- that form assumes Windows-1252, which means there is no way to print accented characters unmangled)
