One could roll a special getprop handler that lives in the script of the
field (and / or controlled by a behavior for several fields ) that can
change the text (using replace or merge) to anything you want:

*instead of *
get the htmltext of fld xxx

*call your getprop property instead*
get the htmlConvertedEntitiesText of fld xxx
