htdig: Character entities...

My problem:
        I must search in pages written in French, these pages
        have character entities in them:
        example : 'créer'

        when I look in the 'db.wordlist' file, it's there.
        No problem yet.

        When I try this word with htsearch -> major problem
         It parses the '&' and ';' as being word separator.
        so we search for 'cr' and 'eacute' and 'er'
        NOT GOOD

        If I set the 'valid_punctuation' parameter to '&' and ';'
        It drops them and give 'creacuteer'
        NOT GOOD YET

How should I do it?
Should I look into 'external_parsers' ?
Help me !
My brain is going to explode!
