(I would prefer using the hex value - one reason is it's easier to search for 
its meaning.)

For now we use numerical entities everywhere.  If this changes, it
should be everywhere too.

Using numerical entities is my recommendation - except for the
standard XML ones: < &qt; " & '

Except for the above list, I'd avoid named entities, as they are not builtin 
with XML,
and medium-term I'd like our HTML output to be XML-compatible

However, when it comes to decimal or hex numerical entities I think
hex is preferable, as that is much more common for Unicode values.
I.e. © rather than © for ©.
