Tavultesoft has a plugin for Microsoft Word that's supposed to be able to
let you use the keyboards, but I tried it on my laptop (Windows 98 SE) and
had problems with it.

You can check the charts at ( to
find which characters are in the different ranges. The upper-case [E] is
U+0190, and the upper-case [O] is U+0186. Some fonts that include these
characters are Arial Unicode MS, Code2000, MS PGothic, MS UI Gothic,
Gentium, GentiumAlt, Lucida Sans Unicode, and Thryomanes. Code2000 is
available from James Kass (, Gentium and
GentiumAlt from Victor Gaultney (,
and Thryomanes from my site (
Code2000 is shareware, but it's easily worth the $5.00 price, since it
covers huge areas of the Unicode character set. Gentium and Thryomanes are
free fonts.

The easiest way to insert these characters into a document (without a
Unicode-enabled keyboard layout) is to use the Insert Symbol dialog in
Microsoft Word and select "Latin Extended-B" from the Subset box. Or you
can download the BabelMap program, which runs on Windows 95 or higher
(, and copy
the characters you need to the clipboard, then paste them into any
Unicode-based application.
