#16432: Hexadecimal entity support within ent2ncr

 There's been several tickets regarding the use of hexadecimal numerical
 entities instead of decimal numerical entities - it's part of a W3C
 standard that [http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod/#C048 Content SHOULD use the
 hexadecimal form of character escapes rather than the decimal form when
 there are both].

 This patch adds hexadecimal entity support to `ent2ncr()` for the existing
 named entities. It adds an optional second argument, and defaults to
 returning the decimal entities so is fully backwards compatible.
