When I need phonetic symbols, I just copy them off of Wikipedia. I don't know how to add diacritics with this method though. Take ◌̥ for example. When I try to delete the dotted circle, and replace it with a letter, the diacritic is always deleted first. What do I do?

I found the HTML code on unicode-table, but you can really just google up a site.
By far and away the easiest method is to go to IPA.typeit.org. Use their full keyboard, type whatever you want with whatever diacritics, and then cut and paste into your post.
