For the Unicode code point 3042, you could type あ (assuming you are
using the hexadecimal code points) in your text, then convert it to
straight UTF-8 using hutrans from <>. Some,
but not all, browsers will even understand &#x3042 without a conversion to
UTF-8, but, of course, more of them will understand it if you do convert it.
