Do we italicize puctuation if the last word in a sentence is italicized? Here's an example: You got that out of this month's People? Is that question mark italicized or does it retain the same typeface as the rest of the sentence? It wouldn't obviously matter for periods--what's a slanted dot look like?--and I guess you can see it in commas. But, in exclamation points, question marks, colons, etc., there's definitely a visual difference.
