Ah, this is AppleScript, isn't it; in quoted strings, backslash is  
special, so you need to double them (see the other strings in the  
macro). So the added text needs to read:

	& "\\catcode`\\•=\\active \\def•{} & return

And if you put it on a separate line, don't forget the line  
continuation character ¬, generated by Option-L (at least on a US  
English keyboard). Again, compare the surrounding text.
