This function converts the text of @var{string} to unibyte
representation, if it isn't already, and returns the result. If
@var{string} is a unibyte string, it is returned unchanged.
Multibyte character codes are converted to unibyte
by using just the low 8 bits.
@var{string} is a unibyte string, it is returned unchanged. Multibyte
character codes are converted to unibyte according to
@code{nonascii-translation-table} or, if that is @code{nil}, using
@code{nonascii-insert-offset}. If the lookup in the translation table
fails, this function takes just the low 8 bits of each character.
