Where do you put the ending punctuation when a sentence ends with a bracket? E.g. if you have something like: Please enter a number between 1 (this aspect of my work is excellent) to 5 (this aspect of my work is very poor). Does the full stop go before, or after, the closing bracket? I note that in a large document that I've been inconsistent in this respect. Please note I'm cheating here. This is for the day job, not any form of creative writing.
