[Discuss] Seeking information on binaries called "entities" and "fixup"

Do they work on the old server but not on the new server? Or do they fail
on the old server as well?

If they work on the old server, then you can run them on some sample input
and compare the input with the output to see what is being changed. If it's
just mapping html entities, it should be easy enough to recode it in perl
or python.
