Where's a table showing Encoded Characters?

I'm pulling text from a db and need to find out how some of the special characters like ' and " so it plays nice with the database, middleware, and displays correctly in HTML. Not URL encoding...this will be for db-field storage.

Long ago, in a knowledge universe far away, I picked up that a bullet (•) is produced by inserting the characters '&#[149];' (i threw the bracket around the number so it doesn't turn into a bullet). I'm looking for a table that list all possible character codes in that format.

When I asked this question elsewhere I was pointed to http://www.unicode.org/charts/ But the format used there isn't directly compatible with the '&#[whatever]; So please either explain how to translate the coding used at unicode.org into a character string I can store directly into the db or point me to a different resource.

thankx
