There's not currently any support for this, but perhaps it would be a  
useful addition. Actually, if we do this I'd want to have the option  
to change " into the Unicode characters “ and ” as an alternative to  
the TeX convention of `` and ''.

The problem with automatic "smart-quote" features, though, is that  
they don't necessarily get it right 100% of the time.
