Many thanks, Andy. I'll certainly look for xpinyin. Right now, I have been using the standard way such as zh\={a}ng. It is rather cumbersome, however. I'd much rather do something like \zhang1. 

Thanks again.

It seems to me extremely odd that such a solution has not been worked on. The obvious issues are with things like '\Pi' and '\Xi' as well as '\Mu' because they are used with other packages.
