I'm quite certain ‘ and ’ are the 'dot-with-a-tail' single
quotes. I haven't been able to find entity names for the single angle

ISO8879 doesn't always make sense. For example, if 'rising left double
quote' is &ldquor, shouldn't 'left double angle quote' have been
&ldquoa? It is very difficult to match some of the names with actual
characters, and vice versa. IMHO, this 'standard' could stand revision,
but as someone pointed out in fewer words: the moving finger wrote, and
having writ, deigns not to change a stinking bit.
