Disable Sphinx SmartyPants in HTML output
The handling of dashes in particular results in confusing documentation in a number of instances, since "--" becomes an en-dash. This disables SmartyPants wholesale, losing smart quotes along with smart dashes. With Sphinx 1.6 we could fine-tune the conversion, using the new smartquotes and smartquotes_action settings.
