  International Phonetic Alphabet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The general principle of the IPA is to provide a separate symbol for each speech segment, avoiding letter combinations (digraphs) such as sh and th in English orthography, and avoiding ambiguity such as that of c in English.
The letters chosen for the IPA are generally drawn from the Latin and Greek alphabets, or are modifications of Latin or Greek letters.
To properly view IPA symbols in Internet Explorer for Windows, you must set your browser font to a typeface that includes the IPA extensions, such as Lucida Sans Unicode (which comes with Windows XP), Gentium (which is freely available), Doulos (SIL) (same source, SIL), or Arial Unicode MS (which comes with Microsoft Office).

An old IPA convention sometimes still seen is to use sub-diacritics for low contour tones: [eÌ—, eÌ—] for low-falling and low-rising.

These teachers based the IPA upon the Romic alphabet of Henry Sweet (1880–1881, 1971), which was formed from the Phonotypic Alphabet of Isaac Pitman and Alexander John Ellis (Kelly 1981).
The symbols chosen for the IPA are generally drawn from the Latin and Greek alphabets.
The difference between these alphabets and IPA is relatively small, although often the special characters of the IPA are abandoned in favour of diacritics or digraphs in these alphabets, since many typewriters and older computer software have no support for the many special characters of the IPA.

Unicode Standard published by the Unicode Consortium corresponds to ISO 10646 at implementation level 3.
It is important to understand that the primary purpose of these tables was to demonstrate that Unicode is a superset of the mapped legacy encodings, and to document the motivation and origin behind those Unicode characters that were included into the standard primarily for round-trip compatibility reasons with older character sets.
The Unicode consortium used to maintain mapping tables to CJK character set standards, but has declared them to be obsolete, because their presence on the Unicode web server led to the development of a number of inadequate and naive EUC converters.

 Unicode IPA: Creating word processing documents   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In order to create a word processing document containing Unicode IPA, it is necessary to have an input method for Unicode IPA characters, in addition to a Unicode IPA font and a word processing application that supports Unicode.
A Unicode font that includes the characters specified must first be installed on the computer, of course.
The second method for inputting Unicode IPA characters in Word 2000 comes from Dermod Quirke and Brian Holser, and involves entering AutoCorrect entries that replace mnemonic abbreviations such as \barredi\ with their Unicode IPA equivalents.

 Shavian_alphabet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Posthumously funded by and named for Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, the Shavian alphabet (also known as Shaw alphabet) was conceived as a way to provide simple, phonetic orthography for the English language to replace the difficulties of the conventional spelling.
Shavian is encoded in plane 1 of Unicode, from U+10450 to U+1047F, but appropriate fonts for Unicode Shavian are rare.
Before it was standardised, fonts were made that include Shavian letters in the places of Roman letters, and/or in an agreed upon location in the Unicode private use area, allocated from the ConScript Unicode Registry.

Once you have a Unicode font, there are a number of ways of typing phonetic symbols.
I find this very slow, because the organisation of the symbols does not seem very logical to me, and the IPA and phonetic symbols are in different places which makes it very tedious when you need to insert combinations of both - for example a long i.
Unicode offers a neat solution - many computers have a unicode font installed, and this means that IPA symbols can be displayed in a web browser, just like any other letter.

 SAMPA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Like IPA, SAMPA is usually enclosed in square brackets or slashes, which are not part of the alphabet proper and merely signify that it is phonetic as opposed to regular text.
The result of this problem is that SAMPA cannot be used as an ASCII representation of the general IPA alphabet.
However, as Unicode support for IPA symbols becomes more widespread, the necessity for a separate, computer-readable system for representing the IPA in ASCII decreases.

Most browsers, including Netscape 4.7 for the Mac, do recognize common HTML entity codes from the Latin 1 character set as well as superscript, subscript and strike through tags.
NOTE: Some codes are selected for ease presentation and may not necessarily be the correct "Unicode entities." Also some items may be listed twice depending on their shapes.
