Would it be possible to include tone marks on the Pinyin names?

Yeah, I guess I knew that already. What I don't know how to do is to get the
letters with the tone marks on them in gmail on my Linux laptop ... I can
insert combining diacritics but they still look awful compared to the
correct Pinyin letters.

It's only the purist in me that wants to see the tone marks, in any case,
since I know those characters (well, except for 芽, which I had to look up,
but guessed would be pronounced something like ya2).
