Murray answers my question

In "ISO 8879:1986//ENTITIES Numeric and Special Graphic Characters//EN"

lsquo Left single quote
rsquo Right single quote
ldquo Left double quote
rdquo Right double quote

So I'm inclined to renew my call for a future version of HTML to
support ISOpub and ISOnum. Dan took me to task for not considering
how difficult this might be to support, but these are characters
that people use, want, and need for ordinary publishing.
