I thank you for motivating me to explore the input methods in Emacs. I've
found that you can indeed input Chinese-GB with tones, by using this input
If you use this input method, tones are REQUIRED, so it's "ni3 hao3 ma1"
not "ni hao ma".
If you want to explore the input methods that are available for Chinese
(and other languages), you can get a list of them by doing this:
C-x <Enter> C-\ <SPACE>
As for your other question - now that I understand what you're trying to do
(getting tone marks over Roman characters) I realize that you don't want
IPA. Those accented characters are actually part of the GB character set.
However, I cannot find any input method in Emacs to access these
