That's what MacToISO and ISOtoMac were for. I'm not sure they still 
apply in LC 7.0 though. But if you're running in 6.x you'll probably 
need to use macToISO() on the text if the platform is a Windows machine. 
Or, you could try storing the HTML as a custom property and re-setting 
the htmlText on Windows; maybe that will map it correctly.

That said, if those particular characters aren't in the Windows 
character set then I don't think anything will work to display them.
