Punctuation Notes
This is good to know. I've been wondering about it for a while, though I had previously failed to find a source. If you read back through RFTR archives, you'll see that I have regularly reworded sentences into severely awkward structures to avoid having an interrogative sentence end with a declarative quotation. Additionally, when I'm IMing people, I tend to use the quote, send the message, and then add the punctuation in another message—thereby making it look like a typo instead of uncertainty. Vain, eh?

Now I know, however, that my instinct was right, and I will adjust my behavior accordingly.
