Not a specific API, but if you make WebKit parse the text (e.g. with
loadHTMLString:baseURL:), it will be available via DOM methods as
Unicode characters. I do not think that there is any way to make
WebKit do the conversion to named entities - but maybe numeric
entities like "с" would meet your requirements? I'm not quite
sure what you need to achieve though.
