What is a ‘question’?

If it’s on yahoo.com, it’s incorrectly punctuated:

fp latino

It’s well-known to readers of Terribly Write that Yahoo!’s editors and writers don’t know where to put a question mark when there’s a quotation mark nearby. It’s pretty simple: If the words inside the quotation marks are the actual question, put the question mark within the quotation marks; that is, before the closing quotation mark. Otherwise, put it after the closing quote mark.

But the geniuses could have avoided the whole issue if they realized that there’s no need for the quotation marks around Latino.
