As a matter of fact (just noticed, to my chagrin) the Multinational charset has a ready-made u-tilde. But the overstrike function I mentioned certainly does the trick if you want to put diacritics over any letter whatever. It never had an easily usable overstrike function, but you can use the EQ

I don't seem to have, or find, "Insert/field"........However, come to think of it, last winter thru AOL I was receiving Instant Messages from a young conlanger who managed to produce barred-i in his IMs using a command _similar_ to what Herman mentions. Unfortunately, I've forgotten it.
