The Unicode English name of the "hacek" character is "caron" (U+030C), and
the "straight line above" is named "macron" (U+030A).
Your word processor is probably inserting a decomposed caron or macron after
the base letter it modifies.
Did you try with the precomposed characters?
C with Hacek:
U+010C C LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C WITH CARON
U+010D c LATIN SMALL LETTER C WITH CARON
E with Hacek:
U+011A E LATIN CAPITAL LETTER E WITH CARON
U+011B e LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH CARON
A with "straight line" above
U+0100 A LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH MACRON
U+0101 A LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH MACRON
U with "straight line" above
U+016A U LATIN CAPITAL LETTER U WITH MACRON
U+016B u LATIN SMALL LETTER U WITH MACRON
The above characters are the composed canonical equivalent in NFC form, and
they correspond to the caracters that are mapped in the ISO Latin 2
character set, which does not contain the separate combining characters
(this may explain why they disappear: your database is not internally
created with Unicode, but with the Latin2 character set)
Check also your SQL client library encoding parameter: the database may
think you're not using the correct character set. This may be a problem with
your DBArtisan tool, if it internally connects to the Sybase engine and
specifies the wrong charset.

Subject: Hacek - Typing from a keyboard... Help!!!!
I am trying to type the 'hacek' diacritic mark above 'c' and 'e' and
also a straight line (not a tilda) above characters too.
The hacek is a diacritic mark used in the Czech and Lithuanian
languages. It looks like an upside-down circumflex or a pointed
breve-essentially a small "v" over the letter.
Please can you tell me what keys on the key pad I should use.
I am aware that if you are in Word 2002 (Windows XP) you can use the
small c with hacek = 010D + Alt x
small e with hacek = 011B + Alt x
small a with straight line = 0101 + Alt x
small u with straight line = 016B + Alt x
However, I want to type these charcarters in a tool called 'Embarcadero
DBArtisan, version 7' in order to put the characters in a Sybase Database.
When I currently type the characters in Word and then try to paste them in
DBArtisan the hacek disappears.
Please can someone help!!!!
