some flavour of xmltex?

latex-l isn't really the list for xmltex as it's not a latex-project 
product, but still...

I don't recall such a file.

In theory the file unicode.tex which is linked from the final section of

includes TeX definitions of all of the html/mathml
  characters. That file began life as part of jadetex specifically to 
provide TeX support, but the TeX side of it probably hasn't been kept up 
to date, however it _is_ now the source of all the entity definitions in 
html and Mathml, so if there are any TeX discrepancies it would be good 
to get them fixed in that file (my personal mail (google for me:-) or 
[log in to unmask] are probably better than this list.
A shorter list of just the entities is available as

which is extracted from unicode.xml whenever it's built.

No one has touched the xmltex sources for a decade or more, however I 
did recently move them all to googlecode at

so if you are using xmltex you may well find things that need fixing
