I'm sure someone else can give a more detailed explanation, but the simple explanation is that language and writing, like everything else change over time, and one of the effects of the standardization of the writing the Japanese language was the loss, or fall into disuse of some characters.

They're ditto marks for unvoiced and voiced katakana and unvoiced and voiced hiragana respectively. You can type them in with おなじ, or きごう.
