8.5 Named character references
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/named-character-references.html#named-character-references

WG Approved: Yes

This is via Yasin Hınıslıoğlu, who writes about character assignments for
&lang; and &rang;...

[[
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
&rang; U+027E9
&lang: U+027E8

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

Please correct these assignments.
