What Richard said while I was writing this messagge explain the mistery of the comma for us (not english lenguage)

It was strange for me that in the example for the code you read:

"Go," said the gorilla...

Usually people in Europe should write: "Go", said the gorilla...

Below, in the part of the text not containing code you read:

If the message above contains a code that reads, "Go," what is the secret message below?

The sentence here has a strange punctuation for us because the comma of the code seems to be doing his function for the no-code part of text. If "Go," is to be considered the code, it would be better to duplicate the comma, writting:

If the message above contains a code that reads, "Go,", what is the secret message below?

It's a very insignificant thing, but I conclude that it was better not to pay much attention to the particular of comma.
