From the HTML::Entities doc:
encode_entities( $string, $unsafe_chars )
This routine replaces unsafe characters in $string with their entity
representation. A second argument can be given to specify which
characters to consider unsafe (i.e., which to escape). The default set
of characters to encode are control chars, high-bit chars, and the <&>.
So why not pass this, Jonas:
my @unsafe = 0 .. 32; # or whatever ascii you DON'T want encoded
$unsafe .= chr for @unsafe;
$contents = "<xml>\n" . HTML::Entities::encode_entities($contents,
