You're very welcome.  Anytime someone points out a resource on this
news group that's interesting I put it on the page.  So a lot of
people have done the heavy lifting for me!  It's getting a little top
heavy and probably should be rearranged (or at least reviewed) for
easier use.  But I have to get back to publishing my molecular
information papers ... the next ones are the ones to watch for!!

Note that  the answer that others gave, to look in:

> http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/symbols/comprehensive/

is, as far as I know, the \emph{definitive} complete answer. 
Unfortunately it's a really big document and viewing it is slow and
awkward compared to the web.  That's not so good for a quick look up. 
I don't know if the wikipedia page covers everything.  But the big
advantage of the wikipedia page is it's html and one can find things
quickly on it.  So maybe someone could go through the comprehensive
list and see if it is expressed completely on the wiki page.  If not
they could add the missing symbols and then put a statement that it
contains the definitive list (as of whatever version).  That would be
a great service because html pages are so fast for looking up things. 
At minimum, a link to the definitive list on the wiki page would be

\therefore there is more to do!!  :-)
