I love it. Now when I want to make a snarky remark, I will know how to punctuate it.

I knew it was to good to be true. Now people are trying to patent them to make a buck.

My keyboard doesn't have those extra punctuation marks on it.

And a heads up: the second link is broken. Tried it three times. Doesn't go anywhere.

It works for me. IDK


Abstract of  WO 9219458  (A1)


Using two new punctuation marks, the question comma and the exclamation comma: and respectively, inquisitiveness and exclamation may be expressed within a written sentence structure, so that thoughts may be more easily and clearly conveyed to readers. The new punctuation marks are for use within a written sentence between words as a comma, but with more feeling or inquisitiveness. This affords an author greater choice of method of punctuating, e.g., to reflect spoken language more closely. Moreover, the new punctuation fits rather neatly into the scheme of things, simply filling a gap, with a little or no explanation needed. Also, the interabang comma if the interabang is available. An example of usage follows. Readers encountering their first question comma in print may silently remark: "Clever! funny I never saw one of those before".

Hmmm. Must be my computer. I have also been looking through your links. If I'm not mistaken, there are two broken links there, as well. I'll check it out again and post you the results, if they appear broken again.
