According to the information Digital Hawaiian, the infromation below may be useful for you.

"The character can be directly inserted into the text through use of a Unicode character. Simply copy the character or word from a source that already includes the correct characters. To aid in this there are some tools hidden in your computer... The Windows utility Character Map can be found under Programs->Accessories->System Tools in the Windows XP Start Menu. This little utility provides a complete set of characters in a small window that can be copied to the clipboard, then pasted into a document. Keeping the utility open beside the main document can provide a quick shortcut to any of the needed diacritical and many other special characters"

No, there's a way to make characters show up by holding down alt and specific keys from the keyboard.

You need to download Hawaiian Fonts and Keyboards For Windows from the link below as there is no Hawaiian input language or code page for Hawaiian input language in Windows XP.

The above method is the only way to input hawaiian diacritical marks in Windows XP and Vista.

According to your link of http://www.darkerview.com/darkview/index.php?/archives/1072-Digital-Hawaiian.html, it says:-

"Use ALT + the numeric keypad to input a code page value of a character. A code page is a set of characters that have numbers assigned to them. Each input language has its own code page. You can insert a character by pressing the ALT key and the character's number. " -> as there is no input laguage for hawaiian diacritical marks, there is no code page for you to use also.

Windows Word 2003/2007 Alt Codes

If you are using a recent version of Microsoft Word (2003/2007/2010), you can use the  following ALT key plus a numeric code can be used to type a Latin character (accented letter or punctuation symbol) in any Windows application.

Notes on the Codes

These work only in Microsoft Word 2003 and above
You must use the numeric keypad. More detailed instructions about typing accents with ALT keys are available. 
The font in your document must be set to one that includes these characters.
If this is not available, you can use the Character Map to insert the characters in a master document, then cut and paste as needed.
NOTE: Users with older versions of Windows may need to use the Character Map utility.

Word 2003/2007 ALT Codes for long vowels
       Lower Vowels
a      ALT+0257 Lower long A
e      ALT+0275 Lower long E
i      ALT+0299 Lower long I
o      ALT+0333 Lower long O
u      ALT+0363 Lower long U
       Capital Vowels
A      ALT+0256 Cap long A
E      ALT+0274 Cap long E
I      ALT+0298 Cap long I
O      ALT+0332 Cap long O
U      ALT+0362 Cap long U

Thanks for the feedback and glad to know that you have fixed the problem.

If you ask me to locate the above information again, I may not be able to find it as I know nothing about Hiwaiian language.
