  Sample input:
UnformatBetter ( "sample text" )
  Sample output:
sample text (with all formatting removed)

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

This is the simplest way to remove all formatting (color, font, size, style) from text. It's even simpler than the Evaluate ( Quote ( text ) ) solution, because it uses one fewer function.
