Hi, was hoping someone here can help me out. I want to put a phonetically spelled chinese word in my ms, but I don't seem to be able to apply to proper accents to the word. The phonetically spelled word (which I got from a translating website) says the word is "baichi." But there should be a slanted accent over the "a" and a straight line over the "i". I tried to changed my tools/language setting to chinese (and I tried it in the Chinese (prc) and in the Chinese (Taiwan) and when I try add the accent (using the option button on MAC), I get a small circle symbol over the "a" and one of these, ^ over the second i.

So, I guess my issue actually deals with how to remedy this situation so it shows up properly on my computer screen. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mel
