Windows 7: Making sense of my alt codes

Making sense of my alt codes

When I look up alt codes online I see a completely different set of codes than my computer is set to.

For example when I press alt-&#177 I get nothing, but alt-0177 gets "", But when I try to get the parallel sign which is listed as alt-&#8741 nothing, so try alt-0871 I get "%" and it's like this for a lot of things.

Any help on getting an accurate list?

Hmmmm, didn't have everything I wanted. I decided to just have a saved file with all the symbols I regularly use, and rely on copy/paste.
