Re: Removing character styles from files.

Mark Tait asked about a function for stripping character styles out
of files. Here is one I wrote some time ago. Note that it only works if
you run it on the Symbolics *before* shipping the file over to the Sun,
as it makes use of the Symbolics-specific "string-thin". A more useful one
would work on the Sun after the file is already there, but, hey, this is
what I already had. :-)
