    Comma's supposed to be inside the quotes, KingofCanader.


    Unless, of course, that's one of those Canuck things you guys do like adding a "U" to words that the rest only use an "O" for.

    There was even a thread about it on SFN.

    I was there and everything.

    Now, keep in mind that this comma and period inside the quotation marks business is strictly American usage. The British don't do it that way. They are inclined to place commas and periods logically rather than conventionally, depending on whether the punctuation belongs to the quotation or to the sentence that contains the quotation, just as we do with question marks and exclamation points.

    Oh heavens, I respect the authority of the SFN.

    Did you gaze directly at it? Did your hair turn white?
