They aren't converted to curly double quotes as in LaTeX.
They give the desired visual effect with some fonts (particularly on
Un*x systems where this convention is common in flat ASCII text).

HTML4-compliant browsers accept “ / ” ("left double quote")
or “ / ” .  Pre-HTML4 browsers don't accept the named
versions, and may well not support the numerical versions either.

I'd suggest leaving the existing `` / '' and perhaps changing in a
couple of years according to support in widely-used browsers.
