HTML Character Code Reference

On the odd occasion I found myself looking for a character code I seemed to always stumble a little, they always took that little bit too long to find than I felt they should have done. So I've pulled this list together from various different places around the web. All the characters I'm ever likely to need in one place. Let me know if I'm missing any.
