In MS Word use Field Codes Alt + F9 p-hat p? , type: EQ \O(p,?) within the curly braces : {EQ \O(p,?)} the caret or hat is made by typing : Alt + 770, use the number key pad for the 770. x-bar: type: EQ \O(x,¯) within the field code curly braces: {EQ \O(x,¯)} x¯ Type Alt + F9 to display the characters instead of the Field Codes.

EQ \O(X,\s\up2(ˆ)) Also, if you are using mac OS X like me, the alt command won't work. Instead, just use the menu Insert -> Field..., and then to edit inline, right click and select "Toggle Field Codes". But (of course) whenever possible, save your time & happiness and use LaTeX.
