Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: IE doesn't support <rb> (it ignores it) and in practice many pages
don't actually use it (the HTML definition of ruby was based on extensive
research for real use of ruby markup in the wild). While there is a short-term
cost to dropping the <rb> element from the content model, there is a long-term
win since the element is essentially useless in practice.
