Preston" Subject: PopChar I am sorry to bother my learned colleagues with such a simple, mechanical request, but I am in need of a simple solution. At home, In have recently becomea a 'Power Mac' user (I know, at my age!). In my old pre-PowerMac days, I had a nifty little program called 'PopChar' which displayed the entire character set of a font (and even let you select one from a on-screen utility while reminding you of the keystroke). The trash known as 'KeyCaps' is, of course, completely useless for this purpose (possibly the clumsiest thing ever written for what it should do). Alas, my beloved PopChar (which was even shareware!) will not run on this new damned PowerMac (Power my ass!). Does anyone know of a PowerMac-friendly utility which will let me see an entire character set at once (and, if optimal, drop in characters at will and remind me of the keystroke)?
