Rendering a page with — or “ entities does not render anything at their locations. If the font is missing those glyphs (as I think ISO-8859-1 fonts do) it should fall back on -- or ", or else show that the entity is not supported by rendering the text "—" etc. (Netscape 4.7 does the latter--that's ugly if you ask me). Falling back to -- and " is clearly the right thing.
