    comma problem

    Hi,

    I was just wondering which one of these forms is the correct one?


    "Archaid CEO, George Dublin, ......"

    or

    "Archaid CEO George Dublin ....."

    Re: comma problem

    I was interested by the general use of comma in appositions.

    But here is the context:

    "The laptop demand has gone down, says K Store CEO, Brian Duncan, whose purpose is to inform the customers about..."

    The commas are appropriate here. Note my additional quotation marks for the quote within a quote. This is the American way of doing it; I beieve that the British way is different, but I do not know what the difference is.
