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
   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.  But when I read Gabriel's post, I realized I'd forgotten to
include a link, which is now in a follow up post.  But here it is again:

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

What are you looking to do with it?

Make money????   LOL, I'm on a roll here.

On the serious side...  If you look at the ASCII table link, you can see
that it's easy to scan the char column until you find "space" for
instance, then know the Dec code is32.

I just want to do similar for all the characters in a contemporary font.
   Then I know the "code" to use for that extended character.  I found a
website, which sadly I can't find now, even with History in the browser,
that had a plethora of charts.  Thought I'd bookmarked it, but also
apparently not.  :-(

Not sure if it's the same one, but I've found this handy for finding
Unicode characters:

It doesn't show the whole range in one table, as that would be quite
some table, but you can view a whole block at once. Not all fonts
contain all Unicode characters, so you may find that some of the more
esoteric characters don't display properly or at all.

That's not the page I was writing about, but I've bookmarked it.  Thanks.

In another thread, I think here in LO, there was essentially a
typography discussion.  Two spaces after a period, or one?  In that
thread, I suggested trying the AutoCorrect function to get what you
want.  Now I'm going to try my own suggestion!   LOL  So, I need to know
where the em space is, and then see if I can enter that into AutoCorrect.

Using the search on the above site, searching for "em space" shows that
it's U+2003 (that's unicode character 2003 in hex, or 8195 decimal)
