Actually, this looks quite good on firefox, both with the actual utf8
encoded diacritic and entity.  You can obtain the utf8 encoded diacritic
when converting to html with --enable-encoding.  I guess that we can
generate numerical diacritic entities in the default case, it'll
probably be better than the plain text accent markers.

The square bracket and similar use of ascii markers is what we use in
some cases (no utf8 output encoding for instance). Admitedly something
for the past, but it should be rare anyway.
