You should just be able to put iso9660 and it'll use Joliet if the CD in the
drive at the time of mounting uses Joliet.

(My fstab line is:
/dev/cdrom     /cdrom     iso9660 noauto,owner,user,ro 0 0

though sadly since my CD drive is slightly stuffed it doesn't get used often. I
think the line works though:)
