Another option (though I'm not claiming you'll actually want to do this)
is to use xml.el (comes with emacs?) to parse that xml into a tree, and
then mess with the tree. Parsing the above gets me:

((tr nil (td nil (pre nil (code nil "X(n, t) X a(n, t)"))) (td nil) " "
(td nil (requires nil (p nil (code nil "T") " shall be " (concept nil
"Copy?Insert?able") " into " (code nil "X") ".")) " " (p nil "post: "
(code nil "distance(begin(), end()) == n")) " " (p nil "Constructs a
sequence container with " (code nil "n") " copies of " (code nil
"t")))))

`xml-entity-alist' would have to be tweaked.

Like I said, you probably wouldn't want this, but it's an interesting
option...
