I'm not sure why you need a decimal version for HTML.  In the i18n WG we 
recommend the use of hex codes (since it's easier to pair them with 
tables such as this).

Even better would be to use utf-8 for your HTML character encoding, and 
use actual characters.

If you do still need to convert them, you can use 
http://rishida.net/tools/conversion/  Just copy the column, drop it on 
the green box, hit Convert and look for the result in the NCR boxes. 
Problem is, I wasn't able to copy from the document - seems to be using 
the private-use area of Unicode for encoding even the ascii characters.
