If you're running Windows, load Character Map. Then click on any character
in the display array. At the bottom of the window, you'll see the Unicode
value and the keyboard character.
Example: "U+0051: Latin Capital Letter Q"
That's if the Character Set dropdown is set to Unicode. If you set it to
Windows:Western, you'll also get the decimal value:
Example: "U+0051 (0x51): Latin Capital Letter Q"
