Perl module to markup ASCII text with correct typography for HTML
This module is a thin wrapper for John Gruber’s SmartyPants plugin for various CMSs.
SmartyPants is a web publishing utility that translates plain ASCII punctuation characters into “smart” typographic punctuation HTML entities. SmartyPants can perform the following transformations
- Straight quotes “ and ‘ into “curly” quote HTML entities
- Backticks-style quotes ``like this’’ into “curly” quote HTML entities
- Dashes – and — into en- and em-dash entities
- Three consecutive dots … into an ellipsis entity
