Off of this topic, which is better answered by others already:
Once Upon a Time, when IBM-PCs still spent most of their time in text
mode, I designed a text screen font that had the symbol in the bottom
part of the character cell and the character code in tiny numerals in
the top part. I had a hexadecimal version and also a decimal version,
though there wasn't room for three digits and I just set zero, one, or
two one-pixel dots for the hundreds digit. Surprisingly useful, actually.
