Hello i18n core,

This is a reply on behalf of the i18n ITS working group. See also
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3459 .

Thank you very much for your comment. We agreed to implement it. Please
have a look at the following :

http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#span (the
definition of the span element)
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#rb (the
definition of the rb element)
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#rb (the
definition of the rt element)
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#locNote
 (the definition of the locNote element)
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#selection-local
(the second paragraph contains a note on arbitrary nesting of ruby
within span)


Please let us know within 2 weeks if you are satisfied. If we don't hear
 from you , we will assume this issue as closed.

Regards,

Felix
