Yes.  And not just the names.  Unicode too has a single stand-in for
multiple (2) characters.  A single Unicode character is apparently
meant (recommended) to represent both the apostrophe and the right
single quotation mark.  These are (should be) different animals and
they need not always have the same glyphs.  But for Unicode not so.
