I know there are different practices for placing the period or comma inside
or outside quotation marks. In the US, we place the period, comma inside
the "quotation mark," while in the UK, it is placed outside.

I'm developing some documentation for the South American market. Does
anyone know what the practice is there for this type of punctuation?
