[OS X TeX] htlatex, encoding and accented characters

I am using the Claus Gerhardt macros in TeXShop to produce an html  
file from a LaTeX source (some text and tables, no math).
The output looks fine on Safari, but these documents contain accented  
characters (they written in Portuguese).

The problem I have is that these characters come out in latin1  
encoding (regardless of the encoding of the tex source).
I have had to manually convert the output in order to use the proper  
HTML escape codes (e.g. replacing ã by ã etc.).
I need this because my wife has to send these documents to her boss,  
who only uses word, and they seem to get garbled otherwise (or at  
least they do in the mac; I don't have a windows machine to test this  
on, and don't want her to send files that may not work).

My question is: is there an option to htlatex that may automate this?  
Or should I just script the conversion steps to clean up the html?
