Summary 0001703: Replace at-sign with <commercial-at>
Description Lines 104749 and 104753 describe structurally same characters but look differently:
> contains an at-sign
> contains a <plus-sign>

Since both refer to characters, they should both use angle quotes.
Section 6.1 'Portable Character Set' lists the official name for '@' as 'commercial-at'.
That name should be used in the few places where the '@' is used in utilities. (I only found it in ls and make.)
Desired Action Replace 'at-sign' with the standard cross reference for characters, of the form:
<commercial-at> ('@')
