Note: Because most Web browsers are unable to display the kahako (horizontal line, or macron) used to add emphasis to a vowel in written Hawaiian, we have substituted the corresponding vowel with an umlaut (two dots, or dieresis). To view this text as it was meant to be read, you must have a Hawaiian-language font installed on your computer. You can obtain free versions of these fonts from the University of Hawaii-Hilo's Web site, http://www.olelo.hawaii.edu/eng/resources/fonts.html

Some newer Web browsers, (such as Netscape 7 and Internet Explorer 6 on certain operating systems) can display kahako without a Hawaiian-language font, using a specialized coding system called Unicode. To jump to a Unicode version of this column, click here.
