Read-only EXT2

I have a system that can get files from an EXT2 file system, but it
can only read.  The disk can be moved to a full Linux host that writes
the files the other system reads.

Recently, the disk data seems to be corrupted, because the Linux
system sometimes loses power.

I would like to use a more robust file system, like EXT3 or one of the
journaling file systems.  Is a read-only EXT2 system compatible with
any other disk format?

Ext3 is ext2 with a journal.

This does not help, unless your reading code is
clever enough to play the journal before reading
if the file system is unmounted uncleanly.

Are there any Linux filesystems that are immune to an "unclean"
shutdown?  If there are, I can try to update my read-only system.
