I need to find an International Phonetic Alphabet font to use with OSX (Tiger). I know that there are IPA symbols in the character palette, but it's hardly exhaustive. In fact, I can't even type proper French in IPA with it, since there's no character with a tilde over the . I've tried several IPA fonts but I can't get any of them to work properly. If somebody could either find an IPA font that I can use or help me through the process of getting them to work, I'd be much obliged. For what it's worth, yes, I used Font Book to install them. No, they still don't work. TextEdit refuses to even display them, electing instead to switch to Lucidia Grande the instant I start typing. As for Word, it automatically substitutes other characters regardless of what it should be according to the font guide (i.e. option-a makes the å as in any other font, instead of the roman "a" that I need). It seems so odd that such an important aspect of the written codification of language would be so sorely lacking, especially with the size the Internets have become. I'd even be willing to make my own font if anybody would be willing to show me how I can make a basic TrueType font.
