In Standard English the punctuation that relates to the whole sentence goes outside the quotation mark- any punctuation that's part of the quotation obviously goes inside the quotation marks.
If you've got a repeated punctuation mark when it comes to quotations (e.g. He said "You've got a nice car.".), in English you put both full stops, whereas in American English you just put the one inside the quotation marks.
