Word Style Palatte for Hawaiian Unicode Use
If you frequently need to type in the Hawaiian language using the ³Hawaiian´ keyboard that ships withOS X or the customized Hawaiian Unicode keyboard provided by the Hale Kuamoµo, one of thecustomizations you can do to Microsoft Word to make your life a whole lot easier is to set the globalStyles to use fonts that have all of the macron/vowel combinations and the µokina included. Thisdocument itself contains modified versions of some of the common default Styles, and the instructions below tell you how to make them the defaults when you create a new document in Microsoft Word.
A Note About Styles
I have found that the Styles feature of Word is one of the least used yet most powerful features of Word.Many friends and colleagues will spend several minutes changing the fonts, styles, spacing, indents andother characteristics of each new document they create. While most of these are beyond the scope of thisdocument, I encourage you to take some time to explore the style feature, and customize its defaults for your use.Another important thing to note is that when you customize any style in Word, that change is saved inthe document that you are currently working on, and is not automatically made the global or default for Word. You must explicitly copy the style from your document to the global file. This document includesinstructions on doing this.
Copying The Styles Embedded In This Document
This document includes several common styles that are found in Word by default. This includes³Normal´ and several ³Heading´ styles. In this document, I have made Times New Roman the fontspecified in the ³Normal´ style and Helvetica the font used in all of the ³Heading´ styles, though thesize and other characteristics will vary. Both of these fonts include the µokina and kahak needed to typein Hawaiian. Here is now to install them:1)
