    Wheras using HTML entities seems natural for you, Mathematicans and
    other heavy users of TeX may want to see TeX digraphs/trigraphs,
    those grown up with ViM would like ViM digraphs, weirdos who
    keep themselves amused by memorizing UNICODE may want
    U+1234 notation etc, etc.

    As is often rightly said, the good thing of standards is, that there are
    so many of them.

    I would agree with you, if Abiword would have sort of modes, then in HTML
    mode HTML entitities would be wise choice. But only then.
