Texturize produces wrong punctuation under certain conditions

According to the rules of English grammar, when a quotation at the end of a sentence is not itself an exclamation, but the sentence in which it’s quoted is, the exclamation mark goes outside of the closing quotation mark. Texturize fails when the last word of such a quotation is part of a hyperlink.
