Hi Mark

This may not be what you are looking for, but have you tried the Character Map applet built into Windows?

Click Start > Run, type CHARMAP into the Run dialog and press the Enter key.

Cheers... Rick :)

Hello All,

Does anyone know of a windows based on-screen keyboard that automatically maps its characters to that of the current font.
A sort of cross between a font viewer and on-screen keyboard.

i.e. It displays the keys in the font that is chosen so that, for example, I can select a font such as wingdings and see what character is displayed instead of the Q,W E etc.

Many thanks,

Mark Emson.
