David Carlisle has pointed you at his files, which is what I
use. Sadly, I have pointed out a moderate number of what are, I
believe, genuine errors in the MathML lists, so I would not be
surprised if They had to make a revision. Then again, since the MathML
DTD itself in the MathML report does not parse, they *certainly* need
a revision!

The saddest thing of all is that you cant typeset all the MathML
entities with `standard' fonts, far from it. The STIX project
mentioned in the MathML report may, I suppose, come to fruition and
generate some real fonts as a side effect, but I would surprised to
see such a thing in this millenium. In the meanwhile, I for one cannot
typeset a list of MathML entities - lord knows how they made the
little gifs for the MathML report.[1]
