Typing Hanyu Pinyin with intonations

I am unable to use the Microsoft Languages feature to produce Hanyu Pinyin with the proper intonation as I am using Windows Vista and it appears that to get this feature I will have do download a language pack and install it into my computer.

I am totally clueless about how this is done with my chief worry being that of my computer becoming messed up as a result of downloading things I do not fully understand. So I sought alternative solutions and in exploring China-Tools.com, I came across a pinyin editor on this website that does the job for me. It is not the best (the ideal would be to be able to highlight the pinyin sentences and get the intonation marks to appear at the click of a button or two) but it does the job well.


Just found this cool site that does the job just right -

这些年已个人
zhē xiē nián yí gè rén

风也过雨也走
fēng yé guò yú yé zóǔ

有过泪有过错
yǒu guò leì yǒu guò cuò

还记得坚持甚么
hái jì dē jiān chí shèn mè

Hi, I'm from America also a Chinese learner.
I find Chinese is interesting and not that difficult to learn.
I use a free e-book which is amazingly great.
I highly recommend this to you and hope you like it.
