Is anyone aware of a way that phonemic symbols can be entered onto a Skype chat window?

I have not found a way to do it so far, and have devised a method of numbering the 44 symbols I have and using a combination of the numbers to explain pronunciation to my student when the audio is not clear enough.

For example: 1 = sh(ee)p up to 44 = (y)es

I send my chart containing the 1 to 44 to my students as a file and they use it as a reference.

If anyone is interested I can put the chart up as a web site for anyone to copy or refer to.

I am using the online typewriter that tdol so generously refered to in one of his postings to prepare files for downloading, but Skype chat will not accept the symbols.
