Parentheses, Brackets and Braces - Rules and Examples
This page discusses many of the less often discussed types of punctuation. It differentiates, for example, between dashes and the two different types of hyphen. It also discusses brackets (but not parentheses) and ellipses…nothing else though.

There are fourteen punctuation marks commonly used in English grammar. They are the period, question mark, exclamation point, comma, semicolon, colon, dash, hyphen, parentheses, brackets, braces, apostrophe, quotation marks, and ellipsis.
Use ellipsis and a bracketed capital (e.g., “[T]he fox in the hen house.”) to indicate that the text has been changed by the quoting author from one sentence to two.
