   '&laquo;' and '&raquo;' refer to the Latin 1 _double_ angle quotes
   (#171 and #187), not the single versions.

Sorry, you're quite right. Not enough caffeine last night: I saw

I found this line somewhere...

Values 128-159 are not assigned to displayable characters in the ISO8859-1 
code and should not be used for displayable characters in HTML.

It looks like there are 2 of theis range defined as above.

What am I missing here.
