Here's a useful reference to Wingdings and Webdings character sets. I find these characters are sometimes useful in design, especially using a tool such as Adobe Fireworks.
Use them as starting points for creating icons. The trick is to use the "Convert to paths" option in the "Text" menu of Fireworks, this converts the font character to a vector image which you can tweak to you're hearts content.
Use this chart as a quick reference to get the image you're after.
