My vote is for outside, as the puncutation can easily get lost way out
there on the end.

Another question: when using a smiley at the end of a parenthetical
remark, is another paren necessary? (this is an example :-) (this is
another example :-)) I've seen it rendered both ways.

This may be trivial stuff, but I like to think of it as being in on the
ground floor of creating a new language. (And what's the correct spelling
of smiley/smilie anyway? :-})
