I think this is a bug in the DTD.  The ’ entity
should map to ’ not ‘ as it currently does
in the DTD.  The same with ” which should map to
” but instead maps to #&x201C; in the DTD. 

I have to admit that the ISO entity descriptions aren't
all that clear.  What exactly does the "rising" in
"rising single quote, right (high)" mean?
The "high" gives the position, so does "rising"
refer to whether it is a 6 or 9 shape?

I'll make sure Norm looks at this.
