UTF8 and hand crafting styles

I mainly work with htmltext - and add the styling direct to the chunks
needed with scripts - like "<b>... </b>", font colours, links etc So how
should I work with UTF8 that I get from a web service?

   1. Turn the utf8 to htmltext and then format as usual
   2. Figure out how to insert small utf16 equivalents for formatting

What are the implications of converting to htmltext - I 'guess" it's a
loss-less conversion?
