Bill, I don't know of any that show you both the dingbat and the associated key.  I use Font Runner and just checked. It does not.  I usually just push keys until I find what I want.  :xmas58:
Find a need and fill it!  . . .

is this what you mean Bill i use this all the time
in font runner i choose the dingbat font
then i click the Mode selection and choose Font map
 you can click on any dingbat and a small info box pops up with the key to press for the chosen dingbat

OR just hover your mouse over any dingbat in the font map and a quick view of the pop up is available.
there is also a useful option to change the size of the font you are viewing in the font map
