There are three basic rules.

  • All commas and periods should be placed inside the quotation marks.
  • All colons and semicolons should be placed outside the quotation marks.
  • Question marks and exclamation marks should be placed within the quotation marks when they apply only to the quoted material; they should be placed outside when the entire sentence, including the quoted material, is a question or exclamation.
