I hope you will get some practical advice on this question since I know we
have on this list oodles of people who must deal professionally with just
this problem. I will say that this is one item that, like the Y2K problem,
was thoughtfully anticipated on the Macintosh platform, where there's been
a KeyCaps  DA from the very beginning which will reveal the keyboarding of
any font installed in the system.
