How do I type letters like ī into normal letters?
I'm translating Japanese color terms and have a question about letters such as ī
Would I type them as "ii" or something else? Notepad, the thing I use to save them in, doesn't support unicode.

ā = aa (sounds like ah)
ī = ii (sounds like ee in eek)
ū = uu (sounds like oo in boo)
ē = ee (sound like eh)
ō = oo or ou (sounds like oh)Source(s): learnt japanese for 5 years

You'd type them as whatever the convention is to type Japanese characters with a Latin alphabet.
