Do you mean entity references or numeric character references?

If it is the latter, you can try a lossless transcoder. The only one of
these public is xml-tcs, which you can find at


This is a set of patches to Plan9's tcs. Because of copyright I cannot
ship a combined version or a binary, but you can put the pieces
together. It can convert characters not available in the output encoding
into various formats, including doubly delimited:

                STRIP: no delimiter, 
                UNKNOWN: put in unknown character indicator "?" or FFFD 
                UNICODE: Unicode-style U+HHHH 
                JAVA: Java-style \uHHHH 
                JAVA_DD: Java-style \\uHHHH 
                XML: XML-style &#xHHHH; 
                XML_DD: XML-style &amp;#xHHHH; 
                SPREAD1: Old SPREAD &U-HHHH; 
                SPREAD1_DD: Old SPREAD &amp;U-HHHH; 
                SPREAD2: New SPREAD &UHHHH; 
                SPREAD2_DD: New SPREAD &amp;UHHHH; 
                CSS1: CSS1 \HHHH 
                CSS1_DD: CSS1 \\HHHH 
                CSS2: CSS2 \\00HHHH (space following is delimiter) 
                CSS2_DD: CSS2 \\00HHHH (space following is delimiter) 
                SGML: SGML-, HTML (< 4) and Netscape style decimal
                SGML_DD: SGML-style &amp;#DDDDDD;
