Trouble with FMP MD5 matching PHP MD5

I am trying to encrypt some data using MD5, and match what PHP gives us with (supposedly) the same algorithm.


In Filemaker, I am using

HexEncode (CryptDigest (  TextField ;  "MD5" ))


In PHP 5.5.9, the programmer I am working with is using the  MD5 function.


The former gives a hexadecimal coding, and the latter gives  . . . I'm not sure what it's called, but it's all letters of the alphabet, and numbers.  So clearly, I am not doing the right thing.  But I can't tell from the documentation what the right thing is, exactly.


Thanks for any advise.
