Thanks, Kenny.

Wrt cross posting, I'd say yes.  The public-i18n-cjk list was set up in part
to allow people to discuss i18n issues without receiving masses of email
about non-related topics. My experience with CSS and HTML (in particular) is
that it's much easier to delete any duplicates about i18n than to deal with
the many many non-related emails on those lists.

Wrt to ruby, please note that you should read the latest editor's version at
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-ruby/ rather than the latest published version
at http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ruby/.  In particular, I'd like to get expert
advice on handling zuyin/Bopomofo ruby, since I think that has been long
neglected. I think it requires a number of different concepts to Japanese
furigana, etc. and that the ruby style specs may need additional properties
and descriptions to enable it (such as position: right;).

PS: I'm looking forward to updating this high level overview of CSS3 and
International Text sometime soon.
http://www.w3.org/International/articles/css3-text/  It has been valid for
too long ;-)
