The fonts for html are (ultimately) selected by the .css file. This
file is written by htlatex according to the fonts that it thinks are
"best-approximations" to the TeX fonts. It also has some features for
a few "virtual fonts" but I am not sure if helvetica is in that list.

Note that HTML is mostly rendered in the browser so that font control
is always approximate --- the css file only "hints" at what fonts the
browser should use.

If you want to get "helvetica" in your html, then your best bet is to
use standard "sans-serif" (cmss) fonts in your TeX.
