I learned Cantonese using Yale Romanization, but I'm unable to type it easily because of the accent marks representing the tones. Is there a quick and easy way to do this without using a special character set or keyboard layout? If not, what's the best (read: simplest) character set to use that will give me the accents I need for Yale Romanization?

There are these input plugins for OSX (There is one for Jyutping and one for Yale). I have never used them myself.
