It never had an easily usable overstrike function, but you can use the EQ field to do overstrikes. For instance, select "Insert / Field..." from the menu and type "EQ \o(i,-)" (without the quotes) into the text box for a barred i character. I have Word 2000, but as far as I know it doesn't support overstrikes in any more direct or friendly manner. I haven't used that feature since I got Fontmonger years ago and started making my own fonts for things like that, but I tested it and it still works.
