I would also mention Emil Ruder, as the father of the "Swiss Style"  
that set the standards of modern typography and design (<http:// 
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emil_Ruder>). His book, "Emil Ruder:  
Typopgraphy" (<http://www.amazon.com/Typography-Emil-Ruder/dp/ 
3721200438>) is the Bible of what constitutes good typography in the  
later 20th century and beyond. Sorry I can't quote from it, as my  
copy is in a box somewhere, but I am fairly certain it supports your  
definitine of hanging punctuation.
