Closing quotes generally come after punctuation, not with punctuation  
dangling after it, thus your second example is the correct one. There  
are some exceptions in the Chi Manual of Style, but quite honestly I  
find them to be obscure and they only pertain to periods, not commas.  
The easiest thing will be to always do "punctuation within quotes." ;-)
