StrongED uses OS_FSControl 18 and 31 to convert hex filetypes to names
and vice versa. If resolving filetype names to numbers fails in StrongED
_and_ the Filer then something seems to be wrong with your system. Does
it affect all filing systems or just a specific one?

When you enter a filetype name in StrongED's SaveBox does it find the
corresponding hex number? If you enter a hex filetype does the right
filetype name appear?
