Suppose that you're writing on genkoyoshi (原稿用紙), and you are writing a quotation, e.g.

「これはペンです。」

And let's say that each line of the genkoyoshi has 8 blocks. The first block would, I presume, be occupied by , followed by one block for each of the kana .

What do you do with the rest of the quotation? My understanding is that you're not supposed to put punctuation at the beginning of a new line, so you can't split it and 。」, nor す。 and . Do you just glom all of す。」 into a single block?

(Or do you just never include a immediately prior to a closing ?)

    Cram all three into the bottommost block -- "す。」". The better schools, teachers and publishers will not accept any other method. – l'électeur Jun 11 '14 at 4:26
