(About the author)
     This code does nothing more than take a word or phrase and convert it to Pig Latin. Now, it is not finished, as I need to somehow figure out how to take in account punctuation. It is almost there, tho, and any suggestions would be nice.

On your punctuation problem, I don't have the codes in front of me, but wouldn't all punctuation be grouped togther by ASCII number. You could test the character to see if it was in that range.

as for the punctuation handling, why not place the puntuation like commas and full stops at the end of the word and things like apostraphies (these things " ') just have them placed after the letter that the correspond to, that would make a dialect of pig latin.

This isn't the most common way of Pig Latin. Pig Latin looks for the first vowel in the word and concatanates all preceding letters to the end and adds ay.
