I think I like this Purdue source better than the one I linked above.

Brief overview of punctuation: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/566/01/

Quotation Marks. Most helpful link I've found so far:

http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/577/03/

Also states that when quoting directly a misspelling that [sic] should be used to let reader know that the misspelling was original to the author, not the current writer http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/577/1/ see item number 5.

Good information on how to place punctuation when using quotation marks: http://www.grammarly.com/answers/questions/4726-quotation-marks-and-other-punctuation-inside-or-outside/ and http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2011/08/punctuating-around-quotation-marks.html
