Jamin provided a promising solution, at least for MacOS Classic:

Just a remark:

Indeed, the basic "FB jGNE Filter"-code has been provided by
Mars but since FB^3 it comes with every Release-CD.

FutureBASIC II/Function Junction/FJ 2/Hacker Stuff ƒ/INIT
Shell ƒ

Of course it is FBII and I guess we shall never see
FB^3-compiled INITs.

Anyway, Mars' code is excellent and very stable.
The code originally provided with FBII and metioned in the
manuals is unstable -- don't use it !

Two of my utilities -- "UmlautXpander" and "ascii2html" --
are based on Mars' code and work perfectly even under the
OSX Classic environment.
