Allow note-level setting of use of automatic smart quotes.

Controls automatic setting (via the Apple RTF frameworks) of styling of 'smart quotes' and 'smart dashes'.

This can also be set at document level via the Document Settings Text tab. As $SmartQuotes default inherits from the latter it allows for an easy document-wide toggle for the effect.

$SmartQuotes can be set via the Text Inspector ▸ Text tab, 'Smart Quotes' tick-box control. It can also be set via Format menu ▸ Text ▸ Smart Quotes
