What kind of article is this? May 14, 2011

Placing the period inside has always been just an optional typographical refinement, for purely visual reasons. It was never truly necessary or truly a dead-set rule.

And on the web… of course… it is impossible to do a correct semantic markup on the web if you make this refinement. HTML just makes it impossible.
