dialogue tags vs. action tags

Dialogue tags vs. action tags — the bane of every new writer. What is the proper punctuation? When do you use caps, commas, periods?

I found a really great web site that explains (with examples) how and when to use dialogue tags. It’s at: Scribd.

There’s also a section on introspection, fades and interrupts, and a very nice section covering general tagging guidelines.
