Manage quotation marks is logical/meaningful (if we suppose it should 
be), but manage commas is … very strange :s. A quote does not absolutely 
required a comma to start or to end (in French at least). The only thing 
we must act upon is the quotation marks, not others punctuations.
Unless if the goal of your mail is to point the fact that manage 
quotations marks is not a good idea ?
