- List of Common Escape Entities??

I have spent some time looking for a page with a list of common
escape entities for such things as ampersand, quotation marks etc. I
am really after a reference list to hang on my wall of those that I
would commonly use for an XHTML strict page.
Can anyone direct me to such a list?

I'd also post the regular reminder that you shouldn't use XHTML on the
web and that you mustn't use XHTML on the web unless you really
Don't trust w3schools to be correct on anything particularly detailed.
They're not, most obviously because of ' as it just didn't exist
in HTML. Yes, this means that you should use ' instead of '
when authoring Appendix C XHTML for the web.
