    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.
