I get a bit muddled here. I usually use an exclamation mark, followed by a question mark. I noticed that our school librarian did it the other way, so now I'm really doubting myself.

It's ?! - it's called an interrobang. The question mark is the 'interro' bit, if that makes sense?

Thanks for that. I knew our librarian couldn't be wrong! smile

I just googled interrobang, and it's a combined symbol of both exclamation mark and question mark.
What is this strange new thing?

Unless you are asking questions such as

Where in the UK is Westward Ho!?

Who wrote Horton Hears a Who! ?

And there was that really excited person who exclaimed "Have you seen Mamma Mia!?!"
