[tex4ht] curiosity about unicode.4hf

I get "a.html" that contains:
I guess you're expecting the literal UTF-8 right single quote instead of
the entity syntax?
AFAIK, ' and " are illegal in attributes,
I have used those characters in attribute values. Anyway, how are
attributes related to the example? I'm baffled here, sorry.
(and #x2018 is not in the file - texlive2016).
Does anyone know why &x2019; ended up in unicode.4hf?
I don't know why Eitan decided to translate ASCII ' to the Unicode
entity value and leave ASCII ` output as literal UTF-8 (with your options).
I don't know what the implications would be of changing it, either; not
something I would want to do lightly.
Briefly looking at the source file (tex4ht-fonts-4hf.tex), I don't see
any explanation. Could have missed it.
Does outputting the entity cause some problem?
htlatex a "xhtml" " -cunihtf -utf8"
Why do you want to use those options in the first place?
