Description : a smart-quotes plugin for pyblosxom

It can perform the following transformations:

* Straight quotes ( " and ' ) into "curly" quote HTML entities
* Backticks-style quotes (``like this') into "curly" quote HTML entities

final HTML output) will appear with smart quotes, em-dashes, and proper

SmartyPants does not modify characters within <pre>, <code>, <kbd>, <math>
or <script> tag blocks. Typically, these tags are used to display text where

source code or example markup.
