So glad you enjoyed it! I'll have to see if I can find her other book you mentioned. I was surprised by how much I agreed with her and just how much of a stickler for punctuation rules I really am. I am by no means perfect, but I find myself paying even more attention to mine and others' works.

And yes, I believe I've found myself signed up for the good fight! You know, I now feel slightly like apologizing every time I use one. But sometimes it's the only way to fully get across just how a sentence is suppose to be taken. I'm actually for the...I can't remember what it's called...the question mark exclamation mark combo. It would definitely help at times.

How are you enjoying Smithsonian History in 101?

Interrobang! I love that name and I need to look it up to see if I can find a picture of it.

I am loving the Smithsonian History; it seems to have a much looser writing style than CW50.

Yeah, it is. I could read it in big chunks but it was also nice to read just a bit at a time.

That's the name! I can totally picture it in my mind but it might could go a couple of ways.

I don't know why, but that's not what I pictured...

That's one of the ways I pictured it (the last one really). The other way I saw it was the question mark hook coming out of the exclamation mark like some calligraphy initial marks look like.

The interrobang is shown in several different fonts here -
