Weegy: 'Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary', published in 1983, contains a very useful 'Handbook of Style' with a large section covering 'Punctuation'. [ There are two separate and very detailed sub-sections for quotation marks: 'Quotation Marks, Double' and 'Quotation Marks, Single'. There is so much in it - all of it very concise and interesting - that it cannot all be summarized here! ]
