As a relevant addition:
Once upon a time M. Blasnik posted some code, which I saved into a
"characters.ado" file fro my own use.
running this program results in a self explanatory graph that shows
you which symbol corresponds to which ascii value.  Different fonts or
different platforms have different mappings for some symbols.

You may find some use for it as I did.
