Explications en provenance de http://para.inria.fr/~maranget/hevea/doc/manual028.html

C.2   Browser configuration

By default, HEVEA insert non-standard font changes in its output, using the FACE=symbol attribute to the <FONT ...> tag. The symbol font is the one available on the Linux Red Hat distribution and seems to be present on many Unix installations. A good way to know whether your browser can show HEVEA symbols or not is comparing figure 1 and the web page located at symbol.html.

Microsoft Explorer displays the symbol font by default.

By default, Netscape Communicator does not display symbol fonts as intended by HEVEA. On an Unix system, the following procedure instructs Netscape Communicator to do so: On a Macintosh, choose Western (Mac Roman) in the item Document Encoding from the Preferences menu. This will work only if the document does not contain iso-latin1 characters above 127. That is, this will work only with documents that are generated by HEVEA with the -noiso option enabled (see section C.1.1).

More details on browser configuration can be found at http://www.tex2html.com/unix/. More details on symbol fonts can be found in section 3.2.2 of this manual. In particular, note that symbol fonts may be completely avoided with the -nosymb option.
