    Default Re: Quotation marks and commas

    If the text is dialogue, the comma goes inside the marks.

    "The Laskett is beautiful," he said.

    If the text within the quotation marks is a quotation from another source, the comma goes outside the marks.

    What is your opinion? "The Laskett is beautiful", according to one source.
