Dear Ms. Straus:
I have created a new rule for the use of Quotation Marks. I believe it would be appropriate for you to incorporate this rule in your publications. My new rule is “When appropriate, punctuation may be placed outside the quotation marks.”
I know this is an odd question, but I can 8767 t find the answer anywhere. I don 8767 t know if there is a right or wrong way. Thank you for your help!
It is unclear what you mean by 8775 saying. 8776 Is this a direct quote from someone? If not, an article belongs in quotation marks. If it is a quotation, use single quotation marks around the title of the article. Italics are not used for the title of an article in either case.
If it is a published manual or handbook, it should go by the same rule. The title is written Drainage Design Manual. If the specific volume or table has a title, the title is enclosed in quotation marks. If it has a number, it would be referred to as vol. 6, table 8, 8775 Parking Lot Drainage Requirements, 8776 for example.

Which is correct or better to use in these examples?
So glad I just discovered your blog.
I am citing a publication (op-ed piece) that ends with quotation marks: 8775 The Struggle to Revive 8766 Honest Services,' 8776 The Daily Journal (Los Angeles), Nov. 66, 7565.
Does the first comma go after 8775 Services 8776 and before the quotation marks? Or does it go between the last two closed quotation marks (Services 8767 , 8776 )?
(In case it matters, I am citing according to the Bluebook for legal citation.)
Here is an example of using both:
