This may not be relevant but I'm wondering if you are aware that IPA

fonts are available for wordprocessing packages like Word and WordPerfect.

The best one publicly available (to my knowledge) can be downloaded from

the homepage of the Summer Institute of Linguistics. The URL is :

The advantage of using these particular fonts is that they can be used to

generate almost any IPA symbol you like as they have a built-in

mechanism for placing characters on top of one another. This means you can

use any number of diacritics with a given symbol.
