i18n-ISSUE-141: Mistake in entity assignments
Last modified: 2014-03-06 23:22:32 UTC
8.5 Named character references
WG Approved: Yes
This is via Yasin Hınıslıoğlu, 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
I checked whole character set defined in html 5 and only these two are different.
Please correct these assignments.

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
Please close the bug.
Thanks for the clarification.
Closing. I18N is satisfied that this is invalid.
