Actually, both ` and ' have special meanings in Emacs Lisp, but it is
conventional to use this combination in this way as quotes.  Type,
for example, C-h k C-n.  Then you will see a lot of such quotes, eg.
in `next-line-add-newlines'.

Maybe an analog could be Java.  In Java code, < is less than and > is
greater than, but in a Javadoc comment, <foo> is an HTML tag.

Does that make sense?
