Character references such as &#150; aren't affected by the character
encoding--they always refer to Unicode, and in Unicode there is no
printable character at 150.

If you're looking for the en dash, it's &ndash;, &#8211;, or &#x2013; in
HTML.  Or you could just use the 8-bit windows-1251 encoding for it (the
byte with decimal value 150).
