I highly recommend Wikipedia for this purpose:
The Punctuation article has a box (top right side) giving links to
articles on specific punctuation marks, including apostrophe,
quotation marks, dash, hyphen, and others. Each of those
articles includes a pretty good usage guide (mostly for English on the
English wikipedi), as well as instructions on how to produce the marks
on various computer systems.
Hope this helps.
