    There's quite a lot written abot the interrobang on the Web, as you can
    see by Googling a bit. For example
    contains a short history of this rather new character. It is of course
    "standard" in the sense of being present in Unicode, but it is not
    standard punctuation. (And it probably and hopefully never will.
    It has no benefits over using "?!" or "!?".) But it's character that has
    been used in texts, so it has a place in Unicode.
