### double quotes in monospace with acm_proc_article-sp

Consider the input

\documentclass{acm_proc_article-sp}\begin{document}\texttt{foo''}\end{document}

using the most recent acm_proc_article-sp.cls, which I believe to be version 3.2 and which you can take, e.g., from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tewalds/CMPUT663Survey/master/acm_proc_article-sp.cls.

the quotes are missing, which is n.f.g. Of course, we can get the double quotes in this particular case as ", though I think it is generally discouraged. Now, I wonder:

Why do we get black boxes instead of anything meaningful,
what's the proper™ way to get opening and closing doubles quotes,
what's the proper™ way to get opening and closing single quotes, and
what's the proper™ way to get straight double quotes
in the scope of \texttt{...} using that old class?
