Added escaping of HTML-unsafe characters, eg < and >, which were not getting preserved when automatically creating word groups. Also, I fixed ampersand wrapping to wrap all ampersands, not just the first.

Source html: "CRAS &lt;VESTIBULUM&gt; &amp; ELIT &amp; INCEPTOS"

Without escaping & wrapping all ampersands:

Wrap all ampersands in span.amp.
`"&"`, instead of `/&/g`, only matches the first ampersand, because JavaScript is weird like that.
HTML-escape the text.
Without this, HTML-unsafe characters, like < and >, don't get preserved.

Thanks again Alec. I'm suprised the htmlentities stuff didn't get logged as a bug well before this! Much appreciated & again, many thanks.
