Directly? No way.
Despite all your claims to the contrary, HLA is not a thin veneer over
FASM.

Gee, for a large number
of instructoins, HLA doesn't even use FASM's ability to translate
mnemonics into object code; HLA emits DB statements with the
appropriate opcodes precalculated.

What are these instructions that FASM doesn't support?

From the FASM website:

<quote>
The flat assembler is a fast and efficient self-assembling 80x86
assembler for DOS, Windows and Linux operating systems. Currently it
supports all 8086-80486/Pentium instructions with MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3
and 3DNow! extensions and x86-64 (both AMD64 and EM64T) instructions,
can produce output in binary, MZ, PE, COFF or ELF format. [...]
