If you are in the sciences, you should be using LaTeX to typeset your papers. Much better layout and you get all the symbols you need.

check it out, \dot{x} gives you xdot, and \ddot{x} gets you xdoubledot

It also makes bibliography management and citation insertion super easy.

if you are a super noob to it, you can use LyX: http://www.home.zonnet.nl/rareitsma/lyx/ [Broken]

as for word, I dunno. don't use it for writing.

If you're working with letters that are vowels, you could just use standard diacritical marks, otherwise I have to agree with the concensus that LaTeX is best.
