DNG - anyone using it instead of RAW?

  1. Provided the punctuation is either a period or comma. :)

    Dunno anything about "the AP style guide," but this is correct use of
    punctuation in the U.S. It's not the way the British do it. (But then they
    aren't always consistent either.)

    All other punctuation is either inside or outside the closing quote
    according to where it logically belongs. In the case of periods and commas
    it's always inside whether it logically belongs there or not.

    The same is true of question marks and exclamation points. I may make
    sense to write something like "Tom shouted, 'What the heck are you
    doing with my cat?'!", but anyone who actually puts a string of
    punctuation to like that is going to raise some eyebrows.

  4. That's an example of why it really would have been a good idea to accept the
    "interrobang" as a standard punctuation mark. In that case it's sort of
    ambiguous; you could as easily argue in favor of the exclamation point being
    inside the inner quotes along with the question mark as outside: "Tom
    shouted, 'What the heck are you doing with my cat?!'" reads well enough and
    I think few would object, outside of formal writing of course. Putting the
    exclamation point separately and outside of the inner quotes does separate
    the acting of shouting from what is being shouted, which I realize is your
    intent, but I don't think it really makes any difference. Maybe in a
    different case it might.

    Probably the best argument against the interrobang is that it wouldn't have
    any real use in formal writing, and in informal writing it wouldn't be
    necessary since the writer could always use both marks.
