OK, after posting my question to the HTML Tidy list mentioned above, I have replies off-list. One of them was from a Tidy developer who pointed out at in the 2007-02-11 version of the Tidy source there's an option called "--preserve-entities" which does exactly what I need.

Problem was, there wasn't any recent Windows binary that was available for download from the Sourceforge site. So, what I did was get Cygwin and compile under Cygwin. The Cygwin executable works under regular Windows after I move cygwin1.dll where Windows can see it. Of course, after I compiled it myself, the developer pointed out a Windows binary of HTML Tidy available at Dirk Paehl's web site.

I'm currently using my Cygwin compiled version and it seems to do just what I need.
