in reply to Encoding entities ONLY in the <body></body> of a webpage

you might look into HTML::Parser and HTML::TokeParser, then utilize the one or the other to get only the content of the body element and process that further.

On the other hand I'd like to point to the fact that meta tags for keywors and description and title also can and mostly will contain entities or characters that should be replaced with entities to be properly displayed.

Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
