Could you please tell more about your task?

Do you need an external tool to compare? Or you want to to do that in your code pro grammatically?
Examples?
What outcome you want from your examples?

That can by making a CLR-function of the codeproject-compare with the things you need.

Pure T-sql you can use replace for all characters you think necessary .... and after gone trough the 'htmlchar-replacer' you can compare the strings.

replace(htmlString, 'ö', '&ouml;')
or the other way
replace(htmlString, '&ouml;', 'ö')

You may try to do as in the previous post but I believe it is not reliable way.
And it would be nice if you put your requirements upfront...

I agree this is not something where T-sql is made for ... that's why I suggested to look at linked sollution and when necessary implement it as CLR
