OP’s question wasn’t about how to escape non-ASCII characters, but
rather about what the copy/paste behavior should be in browsers.

@David, I don’t think it’s reasonable to expect non-ASCII characters
to be transliterated to ASCII characters copying them. That said, it
would be nice to standardize on the behavior here: should generated
content be included when copying or not?
