Is there an editor on board? I have a pet peeve, and I want to know if it is
based in fact or opinion.

I have often seen periods used outside of quotation marks as in the following

The girl said "Arrrgh".

This has appeared so often that I am now questioning my own understanding of
puntuation rules which, as I recall, say that periods must be placed within the
quotation marks at the end of a sentence as in this example:

The girl said "Arrgh."
