In PDF the accent is applied whether the result exists in unicode or
not, by composing characters and accents.  In HTML it is done
differently, there is a table to map accented letters with unicode
chracters, if there is no mapping an ascii representation of the accent
is used.  For example @ringaccent{o} has no mapping to unicode, so is
converted as 'o*'.  We also have some unicode diacritics for the accent
commands, but I think that it does not really work to use those and
simply hope to have composition.

What HTML output would you expect for @tieaccent{oo}?  Are you aware of
a way to have composition of letter and diacritics in HTML?
