createTextNode is not expected to interpret entities.  Entities are a function
of the HTML and XML serializations of the DOM, not of the DOM itself.  You can
insert non-ASCII characters by passing a string to createTextNode that contains
the required Unicode characters.  If you need to insert an entity reference
then the DOM way of doing that would be to use Document.createEntityReference.

Note that in my testing, WebKit behaves identically to Firefox 3 on this
