[tex4ht] [bug #242] Spurious semicolon produced by \textregistered command

I've made patch for tex4ht-sty.tex and tex4ht-html4.tex for loading
the callback under LuaTeX and modified the callback to be little bit
more universal.

I added line `% !4ht encoding = latin1` as first line of html4.4ht and
check for that line in the callback. Overhead isn't as small as I
expected, compilation time is about 50% longer on sample document, so
maybe the other solution, conditional including of latin1 file, might
be better.

+Fix for html4.4ht and LuaTeX. html4.4ht contains some characters in latin1 
+encoding. this causes LuaTeX compilation errors. because of backward
