I have an application where I need to take some text that may contain inch
and foot marks (aka ASCII quotes, ' and ") and change them to typesetters'
quotes prior to exporting as an RTF.

I poked around a little and didn't have much luck; I wonder if anyone has 
already implemented the required algorithm in PHP. If so, that would save 
me some time - since it's not a trivial undertaking, what with nested 
quotes, contractions, contracted numbers like "'70s", old-fashioned 
paragraphs without closing quotes, inch and foot measurements, etc.

If not, I guess I'll do it and share the results.
