I know of no complete and definitive list. A partial list is
available at
listing the entity names supported by draft HTML 4.0.
This includes

        all of Latin-1 top half plus some of CP 1252 (U.S. Windows)

        the ASCII entities needed for quoting (&lt; &gt; etc.)

        everything in the Adobe Symbol font (basic Greek, math
        symbols, various dingbats)

        Unicode whitespace and control characters (&emsp; &zwnj;
        &rlm; etc.)
