Scripting: Invoke Markdown *before* SmartyPants

I could not find anywhere in John Gruber's documentation the
recommended order of Markdown vs. SmartyPants in a scripted process.
I guessed SmartyPants first, and that worked until I tried to encode a
link with a title like this:

An [example]( "Title")

SmartyPants encoded the quotes, which created a mess.

So, I changed the order to process text through Markdown first, then
SmartyPants. So far, so good.
