I don't see the point in adding customization variables to fine-tune
details like whether to use named entities or not.  If named entities
are valid HTML there's no problem.  I believe the decimal entities
existed first although hexadecimal entities would certainly be more
legible especially for codepoints > 255.

These seem like valid goals so would be happy to see patches that produced
XML output, likely as an option.
