Most of the font manager tools display characters of a font grouped by subsets of the Unicode character set. Is there a tool that displays the characters grouped by the particular code page that a given font supports? I.e. for the font
Arial, display all characters that are part of the
Windows 1252 code page.
The only program that does exactly this is Windows Character Map:
The problem with Character Map is that:
- I'm not sure how do entries in the menu map to actual code pages. For the
Windows*ones, one could use this table (i.e.
Windows: Central Europemaps to
Windows-1250), but what about the
- certain code pages are missing in the menu
- inside of the properties of the font file, there is a list of code pages that a given font supports. Seeing those code pages would be helpful, if possible
- there is no way that I've found to see the character code from the code page selected, only the UTF-16 character code is shown (
U+XXXX), though for this one could use the conversion table.
