Back in the 8-bit computer days, it was easy to find simple charts for
various things, like this simple ASCII font chart.

​Ha. Things were even simpler, english used only 7bits for useful

Does anyone know of a similar simple chart for modern/contemporary fonts?
 Everything I've found so far, for charts, are far more complex than I'm
looking for.

I don't know of an exact solution that would allow you to both specify a
font and a set of characters, but on most systems you can get some kind of
character maps to display characters using a specific font. For example on
windows, ​​you can run the "charmap" program. I don't remember the name,
but I know there is something similar under KDE/Linux.

From you posting, you use Mac, correct?

I am not using Mac, but there has to be some font viewer available for Mac.

What are you looking to do with it?

I know that LO has a font charting display for "insert special
character" that look good.

If you want to print a character chart for a selected font, well most
font managers I have seen does that to some degree.

As for the KDE option - KFontView
I also use Fontmatrix on Ubuntu.

I use a paid software on Windows to get what I want though - MainType.
