Can we convert path strings like this (complete mess! but OSX accepts 
them, but later they break other apps....)

to POSIX strings using Livecode?  I know I can do it with AppleScript 
but I want to pass them as POSIX strings to a Javascript (I don't even 
know if javascript will accept POSIX strings as input to JSON type 
variable... )

I tried to do my homework on this, but I'm not sure I even understand 
yet what a POSIX string is!
