    Question Using question marks or explanation with quotes

    hi,
    I forget, when you quote someone thinking, where do you put the emphasis marks to describe what their mood is?

    For example:

    Mark saw a printer on sale and thought, “what a great idea, I can use this to print my flyers”!

    Or should it be

    Mark saw a printer on sale and thought, “what a great idea, I can use this to print my flyers!”

    Inside - he's thinking the exclamation, and what he's thinking all goes in quotes.
