Can't you just copy and paste your documents from
Mozilla/Firefox/whatever into OOo? I know, this looks too simple to be

 Picked up an xhtml file, inserted random decimal entities, loaded it
in Epiphany (based on Mozilla's engine), copied text and pasted it into
a unicode text editor: I ended up with unicode characters.
