The CSS Working Group has republished the CSS3 Ruby Module [1] 
specification as a Working Draft. The document had previously been 
published in 2003 as a Candidate Recommendation.

"Ruby" are short runs of text alongside the base text, typically used in 
East Asian documents to indicate pronunciation or to provide a short 
annotation. This document proposes a set of CSS properties associated 
with ruby elements. They can be used in combination with the ruby 
elements of HTML.

The present Working Draft prepares the ground for the specification to 
be changed in a number of areas. Motivations for these changes include 
introduction of requirements arising from the Requirements for Japanese 
Text Layout document, updates to the handling of bopomofo ruby, and most 
importantly adaptations needed to support the new ruby markup model 
being introduced by HTML5.
