I was impressed of some answers (as well as comments) which used phonetic transcriptions.

My Question is how can I enter them in the text editor?

Maybe it's not possible with an ipad, how do you do this on a PC?

If you're on a Mac, I can't recommend IPA Palette enough. I do think the site would benefit from something built-in though.

The nice people at SIL have a great resource for this.
