Or an HTML escaping utility, but I don't know if it would escape it to a named entity or the number. Apache Commons Lang has such utilities.

(And no, I don't think displaying it in an option pane is really converting it to an entity.)

The 174 is the int representation of the character; 00ae is hexadecimal for 174. So just cast your char into an int, then wrap it in &# and ;
