    Here are the basics:

    Full stop:: Comes at the end of a sentence. No space before it. One space directly after it.

    Comma:: no space before it, but one space directly after it.

    Question mark: at the end of a question. No space before it. One space directly after it.

    Exclamation mark: at the end of an exclamation. No space before it. One space directly after it.

    Brackets (this kind): space before the "open bracket", then type the contents immediately after the open bracket. No space before the "close bracket". Space directly after the close bracket. Example:

    My father (who is 62 years old) is called Gerald.
