As Juan Manual Macías wrote, I confirm single quotes are only recognized
as second level quotes, i.e., nested within double quotes, or as
apostrophes.

Also, "smart" quotes use some gross heuristics that cannot handle all
situations. So, if you have very specific needs, you probably have to
disable them entirely.
