I use HTML text not at all, but after looking at the dictionary, it seems 
there is no direct way to do this. I could be wrong.

But it would be simple to take the output and do a little massaging. An 
ampersand seems always to be inserted as a tag when the function encounters a 
character with ASCII above 128, and a semicolon seems always to act as a 
terminating tag.

You can write a widget to find those characters, and convert them to ASCII 
with the charToNum function.
