\H{<letter>}  specifies the Hungarian umlaut.

So far as I know, there are no special entity names or numbers
for characters using this accent --- certainly not in ISO-8859-1
but maybe there is something in another encoding.

In TeX, the only way to support this (that I know of) is by making
an image of the required accented character.
In LaTeX2HTML, you need to set $ACCENT_IMAGES to obtain this;
e.g. $ACCENT_IMAGES = 'textrm';
so that you get a roman font in the image.
($ACCENT_IMAGES = 'textit';  would give italiced accented chars.)

Are there Unicode points for letters with Hungarian umlauts ?
If so, I've never been advised of what these are.

In any case, do browsers support these code-points?
(If not, then there is no point in using them, at this stage.)

I've not readdressed this problem for ~3 years.
Perhaps in that time new possibilities have arisen.
If so, please inform me of what these are.

Hope this helps,
