Ok I think I've gotten this working in my own way (that my novice brain can understand):

utf8::decode($content); while($content =~ /([\x00-\x08\x0B\x0C\x0E-\x1F\x80-\x{1FFFFF}])/){ my $char = '&#' . ord($1) . ';'; $content =~ s/([\x00-\x08\x0B\x0C\x0E-\x1F\x80-\x{1FFFFF}])/$char/; }

I'm sure there's a more efficient way to do this, but the resulting &#xxxx; structure seems to work. And the important thing is the regex should be finding all those weirdo characters. Thank you!
