    Is there a rule about Italics before or after quotation marks?

    I have a sentence that is italicized text between quotation marks. Should italic mark up be within the quotation marks or outside the quotation marks?

    Also the same question for punctuation marks. Would italics go outside of the punctuation or inside?

    Thanks,

    Susan

    Just letting you know that I found the answer in UEB formats 9.7.3

    Did you read Hamlet?

    [The question mark is not underlined in print.]

    ” Help! I’m falling .”

    [The quotes are not in italics in print.]

    The braille did not show up in this pasted copy. But it does say that quotes and punctuation are not included in italics.

    UEB actually allows either way.  If you can tell that the emphasis in question does not apply to the punctuation in print, then print should be followed.  If you can’t tell, you should choose to include or not include and then be consistent.

    Good job finding it in the code book!
