Bold and punctuation

When you BOLD or Italicize...do you include the punctuation in it?>>

------------

Yes, with exclamation points and question marks. Bold is generally italics also, so it looks funny if the ! or ? isn't italic as well. I guess the word could be bold and the ! or ? just italic (if the bold is also italically slanted)

I don't worry about periods (what's an italic period look like? -- a period).

I took my cue from the old classics I was studying before I went pro--Rosen and Simek from Marvel--they used bold punctuation when used at the end of bolded words.
