Scott, Is this a book written by an English as opposed to an American author? The English do it that way. They also, I've seen in books I've validated, omit the period we put after titles like Mr., and put punctuation marks outside quotation marks instead of inside, as we do. Some of that may depend on when the book was published, but I'm not sure. To find out more about the differences, as well as an interesting take on grammar and punctuation, I recommend Eats Shoots and Leaves, which is in the collection. It's an amusing book. Which reminds me, spelling differs, too, z being used in words like amusing instead of s. When I validate a book like that, I don't change anything but I do put in the long synopsis that the book used English rather than American spelling and punctuation.
