    Not long after the last post, but I found a bit of a more comprehensive list of them on MSDN, here: msdn.microsoft.com/…/cc704587.aspx

    There's easily over 200 of them, and probably somewhere in the range of 500-1000.  The nice part is they all have a brief description to go along with the code's name and hex value.
