      You may want to look at: http://www.unicode.org/charts/

      I also like to look at this page:

      http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/bycodes.html

      to find Unicode equivalents of the various named character entities
      often used in HTML. For example,

      U02010, HYPHEN , hyphen, dash
      U02013, EN DASH , ndash
      U02014, EM DASH , mdash
      U02015, HORIZONTAL BAR , horbar

      Anyway, you can embed these into your XML documents as:

      ‐ – — and ―
