That's because your browser doesn't have an easy way to show these characters inline.
Not until there is proper Unicode support in browsers, with adequate fonts
to match, is this a reasonable proposition.

Just in case you *do* have such support, then try:

latex2html -html_version 3.2,math,unicode -nomath -entities  <filename>.tex


latex2html -html_version 3.2,math,unicode,utf8  -nomath -entities  <filename>.tex

Hmm; that shouldn't happen; try  $^{1}$ instead, or $ ^{1}$.

Hope this helps,
