I learned of one way, which is a tad slow, but OK for just a few letters - run Start/Programs/Accessories/Character Map. This allows you access to letters with macrons.

A lot quicker and within Word: use Insert - Symbol and select your letter. You can also create shortcuts for the letters, if you want to use them often.

As a friend of mine says, 'why use big words when diminutive ones will do just as well'. :lol:
