  Some browsers show this combination nicely --- unfortunately, not all 
do so.

Have you tried setting the variable:
within the  .latex2html-init  file ?

Be warned that not all browsers may show the resulting special entities 
  --- that's why this isn't the default.

Try something like:

    grep QUOTE `which latex2html`

to see the names of possible relevant variables.

LaTeX2HTML is *not* based on a TeX engine, so using there's no way to
make those packages work. The logic needs to be recoded using Perl.

Have you tried using the Omega variant of TeX ?
That should give you HTML with Unicode.
