This is a CGI version of John Gruber’s SmartyPants plugin. Use it to convert plain punctuation characters such as quotes and dashes into typographically satisfying “smart” characters, suitable for use in HTML documents.
This saves you the trouble of looking up HTML character entities yourself and manually typing them. This can be especially useful if you use a service like Blogger or Typepad that cannot be customized.
