XHTML entity reference

You would think, being a person that codes and works with web pages all the time, I would have most of these memorized, but it seems I am always googling for entities.

Rather than hunt through sites yet again, I've compiled this list. It shows the html entity, hex code, dec code, as well as the rendered version of the same (so I can test in various browsers).

It's not complete, but has most of the entities I'll likely use. If you want me to add any, let me know.
