At http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/the-rp-element.html we see the following 
example of markup for ruby, including fallback parentheses:


<ruby>漢<rp> (</rp><rt>かん</rt><rp>) </rp>字<rp> (</rp><rt>じ</rt><rp>) 
</rp></ruby>

This example uses

   ‎0020  SPACE
(  ‎0028  LEFT PARENTHESIS

Assuming that that is the kind of parenthesis that the user wants to use 
(rather than say a square corner, for example) should it actually just use

(  ‎FF08  FULLWIDTH LEFT PARENTHESIS

Same idea for the right paren. ie.

<ruby>漢<rp>(</rp><rt>かん</rt><rp>)</rp>字<rp>(</rp><rt>じ</rt> 
<rp>)</rp></ruby>


Or should it be U+0028 without the space?
