Unfancy quote plugin for WordPress v.1.0

In resources — The unfancy quote plugin for WordPress removes the fancy quotes inserted by WordPress.

This plugin will be useful to anyone who regularly inserts code in his posts.

Note that it does not convert utf-8 fancy quotes before they are processed by mapgie. These still return the weird ? which breaks XML parsers. But it’s a good first step.
