true, British rules say the "comma", follows the quotations
while American rules states the "comma," stays tucked inside
same for periods/end of sentences

not sure about the exact rules (US or UK) pertaining to "!"

but my guess is exclamation marks should be placed
outside quotation marks if intended to be in the author's voice
and inside if the original speaker was being demonstrative

I can't believe he actually said "w00t"!
He was so excited by his discovery of the [foo] external he exclaimed 
in this case the period follows the exclamation mark inside the 
quotations but not sure if this is correct...
