Numeric character references are derived from the code values in ISO
10646-1:1993 as prescribed by the XML 1.0 Recommendation, but you would do
better to obtain a relatively affordable copy of The Unicode Standard
Version 3.0, which is a printed book available through Amazon or any other
computer book shop.

Online you will find that the references at

are most helpful in this regard. I also recommend for Windows 9x/NT users, (a better Character Map)

in conjunction with the Bitstream Cyberbit font at

As for entity references like &amp;, there are only 5 of them in XML and
they are listed in the XML 1.0 Recommendation. They are &amp; &lt; &gt;
&quot; &apos; for & < > " ' respectively. All other entities have to be
declared in the document's DTD.
