RubyPants Unicode — SmartyPants ported to Ruby

It just occurred to me that if we are encoding our HTML pages in UTF-8 to handle multiple languages and using web fonts with multilanguage support, shouldn't we be able to directly insert the simple apostrophe, ellipsis, and em-dash?

RubyPants

RubyPants is a Ruby port of the smart-quotes library SmartyPants.

The original “SmartyPants” is a free web publishing plug-in for Movable Type, Blosxom, and BBEdit that easily translates plain ASCII punctuation characters into “smart” typographic punctuation HTML entities.

See rubypants.rb for more information.

Incompatibilities

RubyPants uses a different API than SmartyPants; it is compatible to Red- and BlueCloth. Usually, you call RubyPants like this:

  nicehtml = RubyPants.new(uglyhtml, options).to_html

where +options+ is an Array of Integers and/or Symbols (if you don’t pass any options, RubyPants will use [2] as default.)

Note:: This is incompatible to SmartyPants, which uses [1] for default.

The exact meaning of numbers and symbols is documented at RubyPants#new.
