AnnotationPunctuation

Chess games are recorded in a variety of notations --- algebraic, descriptive, etc. But in addition to the raw sequence of moves, published games also get annotations: critical comments on the positions and choices that the players have made. To save space and promote international readability some commonly-recurrent themes have acquired typographic symbols:

! = good
!! = outstanding
? = weak
?? = blunder
?! = dubious
!? = risky but worth considering

Perhaps this code could be useful in ordinary writing!?
