I've got a handful of VGA video cables. Is there a way to know which (if any) are UXGA cables? Is there a certain marking on the cable jacket I should look for, besides "UXGA" of course :) ?

Although "VGA" technically means 800x600 resolution, the term "VGA cable" does not connote the resolution that the cable supports.

All your VGA cables should support UXGA (and higher) resolution.

800x600 is actually SVGA; 640x480 is VGA –  Nick T Jan 24 '13 at 22:19
