In Latex \"{o} is for two dots above o and \'{o} is for uptone above o. And I am creating a website .html with MathJax for mathematical formulae and equations. But they just show as \"{o} and \'{o}. I am wondering what commands should I use to make them look correct?

I sincerly hope that you are not trying to typeset text with umlauts that way. MathJax is only for mathematical formulae. There you can use \ddot and \acute.

$m \ddot{o} = \acute{F}$
