comment Proper placement of inverted question mark
But the usage of both signs is relevant for the question, since both signs have the same rules.

I figured just copying the answer. I dunno if that is forbidden though. I guess they are different questions...

I meant articles aswell, or a academic paper. Not really limited to legal documents. Anything that is outside of the informal must use them.

comment Proper placement of inverted question mark
I'm sorry but it is enforced in official documents and articles. It is still important for the understanding of the phrase. It may be ignored talking to friends or SMS or messenger. But not while writing seriously.

comment How can I know if a word or phrase should be avoided due to regional variations?
That's probably because you are from Madrid yourself. But as said, it is highly subjective, and wikitravel considers the one spoken in Bogota as the most neutral. Not to mention the RAE considering it very good aswell: Source Please be aware is the one in Bogota. Not in Colombia.

comment How important are accents in written Spanish?
Good answer. It is true that accents should be used even when all letters are capital. Although this rule is often contested by native speakers. When I was in school my literature and philosophy teachers always took a point off when an accent was not there. For us while reading a book or article accents are very important and demonstrate the dominion of the author in Spanish. Personally, when I don't see them it burns my eyes, but I guess that's product of my spanish literature nazi teacher...

The thing is the accent can be omitted only on SOME words. But most accented words REQUIRE it to distinguish themselves from other words. For instance with past tense and present tense or with homonyms. :-)
