Macrons in Maori language
The State Services Commission supports the use of macrons in Maori language, and uses macrons in all Maori text in its internal and external published documents.
On websites, however, the ability to display macrons is limited by current technology and a lack of standardisation. If vowels with macrons are used, it cannot currently be guaranteed that Maori words will appear correctly on all browser platforms.
For this reason, the Commission is not using macrons on its website at this time but is committed to incorporating macrons as soon as it can be assured they will display correctly across all browser platforms.
