quote & apostrophe chars inside comments in python blocks #23

Migrated issue, originally created by Anonymous

A simple template file:

# it's a comment

will raise a Syntax exception, because of the apostrophe character in the comment text. The same happens if there is a quotation mark.

-style comments outside python blocks are not affected.
