I hope someone on the list can make suggestions, as I've never
actually used anything like that. I seem to recall there's been
previous discussion of the topic, and I thought there was some kind of
solution around -- not via .xdv, but directly from (xe)latex -> html.
I may be mistaken, though.

It sounds to me like what you really need is some help in sorting out
Word and/or system/keyboard/font setup issues. It should be perfectly
well able to cope with that, as well as with whatever transcription
characters you need, etc.

Are you perhaps using old, non-Unicode-compliant fonts for these
"transcription characters", either in Word or in whatever you're
trying to copy/paste from? You haven't given specifics of the fonts,
etc., but this doesn't sound like normal behavior.
