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.

It works fine also on Google Chrome, and on Epiphany (based on the 
Safari/WebKit engine).

Just generate 'oo&#x0361;o' and be done with it.
(I would prefer using the hex value - one reason is it's easier to search for 
its meaning.)
