[jdom-interest] no conversion of entity number required

JDOM internally stores the *semantic* value of the XML not the 
incidental serialized form it had before ingestion.  That said, you can 
with the outputter (via the Format class) plug in an EscapeStrategy that 
dictates which characters to escape as character entities.  It escapes 
using the char's hex numeric value.

You could also just use the Format class to adjust the output encoding 
to "US-ASCII" and then it'll escape all chars that aren't under 128.
