Find some text characters

Is there a easy way to do this?:

Given this htmlText that may contain Chinese characters and/or some horizontal tabs—


I want to know if this data contains Chinese characters, that is an entity with 5 numbers between the “#” and the “;”

Only data containing 5 numbers between the “#” and the “;” would return true. Having ONLY "	” but not the other would return false. 

Thanks for suggestions!
