 If the <q> element behaves as I've proposed it should, then both would be
valid HTML 5. Assuming the language code were EN, the former might render,
by default, as:

"I'm tired of this," he said.

which is definitely a grammatically correct English sentence. The latter
might render, by default, as:

"I'm tired of this", he said.

which is of debatable grammatical correctness wrt. British English at least.
