I want to find out what string lies under $Resources:core,....

Is there a list, or a class where I can see what exactly are the values for those resources?

Yes, take a look into the file

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\Resources\core.resx

The format is :

$Resources:name_of_resource_file, key_of_ressource

A warning thought, this will concerns the resources you will find in all xml files, or in code.

In aspx markup, the resources will be read from

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG\Resources

These files, plus some resources files taken from features, will be duplicated into

    The 14 folder contains a lot of useful things. Hard to find sometimes, but very useful to understand some behaviors of SharePoint. Do not hesitate to to look into this folder !
