Can you post the html/css in question, or send it to Thanks.
If this is using combining diacritics such as u+302 (circumflex) and u+305 (overbar), then Prince is quite dependent on the underlying font to position the diacritics sensibly. DejaVu Sans does a reasonable job other than over capital Gamma; other fonts I tested performed quite badly, sometimes not combining the diacritic with the preceding base letter at all.
