http://www.w3.org/2003/entities

has been updated and there's a new (>5MB) version of unicode.xml
available at  http://www.w3.org/2003/entities/2007xml/unicode.xml
Also the character tables available now include, in the same table, both
renderings using stix fonts (if you have them installed) and the images we
used previously. Currently this is just an editor's draft but hopefully
will be submitted as an offical Working Draft soon.
