The 1999 revision of ISO 6937 aligned its character names with
ISO/IEC 10646-1:1993. Although it doesn't contain a formal
mapping between 6937 and 10646, in ISO-speak such an alignment
of names is intended to identify characters between standards.
Hence, the most correct mapping between them is:
0xD0 0x2015 # HORIZONTAL BAR (quotation dash)

Since U+2014 EM DASH is more widely supported than U+2015
HORIZONTAL BAR, particularly if transcoded to other legacy
8-bit character sets, U+2014 is a reasonable fallback conversion
for ISO 6937 13/00 (0xD0).
