Dennis (and interested observers):
The latest version of PopChar is PopChar Pro 1.02 (from July 97) (as opposed to plain old
PopChar 2.72, the un-pro version). Before you install any other program, try downloading it
re-installing. It should work.
If it still doesn't work, here are a couple of programs for viewing fonts on a Mac that you might
try (all available from http://hyperarchive.lcs.mit.edu/HyperArchive.html).
FontVu: Application, easy interface. Dump it into your Apple Menu Items folder in the System
folder for easy access from the Apple Menu. Seemed a little slow, but I have a billion fonts
installed and ATM set to anti-alias fonts on-screen, so who knows?
QuickChar:Allows you to invoke the character representation with a keystroke. Uses control
panel and system extension. Possibly more complex than necessary.
FontClerk 6.2: Very comprehensive, definitely more complex than for the infrequent "is it option
'e' then the vowel?" kind of question. But still a good program.
