This is know as left double angle quotes. You can implement them as &#171 or «. I use this site for all my ASCIIHTML code needs.

The character you want is called "LEFT-POINTING DOUBLE ANGLE QUOTATION MARK" in Unicode. It is at code point U+00AB. It can be found in the C1 Controls and Latin-1 Supplement code chart.
