There is the generic preview; button, window, view with one view row, 
one selection row, and the abbreviated "!", "=", etc. The other preview 
(two rows with "normal", "inactive", etc. spelled out) is the "set preview".

That one I am not going to attempt to code the set into the tooltip 
(would be hard I think, especially to get the i18n right). The generic 
one has e.g. "Window Normal Text against Window Normal Background", and 
so forth.

You are correct about which of the single characters maps to which name. 
As above, since this is the generic preview, it will actually be e.g. 
"View Active Text against View Normal Background".
