Grail commented <<But then, I was told - by a woman from Alabama, so anyone who
wants to make Deep South jokes can have a field day now - that American English
writers place punctuation marks outside of the quotation marks (Let's go to the
beach", Jane suggested).>>
I taught English in America (Georgia) for 12 years and NEVER encountered that in
any text book - just student papers, where I marked it incorrect and deducted
punctuation points. Punctuation always goes inside the quotation marks.
