Dear colleagues,

Let me introduce myself.  I am MURATA Makoto.  I am the
coordinator of an internationalization subgroup of IDPF EPUB
Working Group.  To be precise, this subgroup is named EGLS
(Enhanced Global Language Support).

I am writing this mail to solicit feedback about the support of
ruby in HTML5.

HTML5 supports ruby (or Zhuyin Fuhao).  One important
difference between the ruby in HTML5 and that in
"Ruby Annotation" (W3C Rec) is the rb (ruby base) element.
HTML5 does not have it, while "Ruby Annotation" does.
This issue is now being discussed in the HTML WG, and
a co-chair (Paul Cotton) is soliciting proposals.

In Japan, the rb element is used in, for example, in Yomiuri
newspaper.  In China, is the rb element widely used?

Kenny will explain more about this issue. I am looking
forward to his summary of the upcoming discussions in
this mailing list.

Regards,
Makoto
