You can find which character correspond to which key by doing some testing. Don't forget pressing Shift will give you a different character.

In MSWord you can also find some specific characters of that font by going to Insert > Symbol. Select the installed font and you will see whole lot of characters displayed. Select the character and press Insert.

Hope this helps.
