For the moment, I opted to use string replacement as my "solution."
So for the below string containing the HTML decimal represenation for en dash:
>>>x = "The event takes place June 17 – 19"
'The event takes place June 17 - 19'
It works in my case since this seems to be the only code that
Universal Feed Parser didn't properly translate, but of course not an
ideal solution. I assume this path will require me to build a
character reference dictionary as I encounter more character codes.
I also tried wrestling with character conversion:
Not sure where to go from there...
