In other words, regarding whether to place punctuation inside or outside
of quotes, is the British style or American style used in Europe? How
about in Asia in general and Japan specifically?



I am also curious at to whether the Europeans prefer double quotes
inside of single quotes for quotes with in quotes or vice-versa.



Thanks in advance!

Leonard
