Word 2003 (and Publisher 2003, I am told, but cannot say from
experience) use a private, updated version of Uniscribe, which is why
combining marks work in Word 2003 but no earlier version. Service pack
2 of WinXP also provides an updated Uniscribe, which is why combining
marks work in Notepad if you have updated your system.

You have to copy and paste from Word, or use CharacterMap (BMP
characters only) or Andrew West's BabelMap; or create your own keyboard
with Microsoft's Keyboard Layout Creator.
