WG Approved: No

This is via Yasin HınıslıoÄŸlu, who writes about character assignments for ⟨ and ⟩...

[[
In the html 4 specification, which is here: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/sgml/entities.html above values declared are as follow,
&rang: u+2329 utf8: E2 8C AA
&lang: u+232A utf8: E2 8C A9

Contrary in html 5 specification, which is here: http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/named-character-references.html, same named entities are declared as below
⟩ U+027E9
&lang: U+027E8

I checked whole character set defined in html 5 and only these two are different.
]]

Please correct these assignments.

From Leif Halvard Silli:

This is not a bug.

The change is deliberate, and in tune with the W3C Recommendation: "XML Entity
Definitions for Characters" See:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/REC-xml-entity-names-20100401/#diff-xhtml1
