I'm writing a document using the Chicago Manual of Style. I don't have access to the full guide, only to what's provided on-line. Now I wondering as to whether, in the main text itself, I should use the punctuation-quote or quote-punctuation sequence. For example:
"Blabla," more blabla.
"Babla." More blabla.
"Blabla", more blabla.
"Blabla". More blabla.
Also, does adding a footnote change anything to the sequence?
"Blabla,"² more blabla.
"Blabla",² more blabla.
The Chicago Manual of Style proposes, when citing sources in footnotes with regard to articles or parts of books, to use:
Joshua I. Weinstein, “The Market in Plato’s Republic,” Classical Philology 104 (2009): 440.
As you can see the comma is within the quote. I am ready to accept this for a title, but in a sentence of the main text, it looks odd to me.
What is your opinion in this regard?
