Most of the time, I only see the code with no letter associated with it, and
the Character set drop-down list is grayed out. That's what I see when I
select any of the Webdings, Wingdings, or Zapf Dingbats fonts. 

I noticed that when I select Verdana or Times New Roman, I do see the actual
letter information. That makes it easy.

Thanks for all these additional resources and ideas, Tammy, Mike, John, and
Steve. Very helpful!

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"
