Do you have any links to pages that actually style the <rb> element? I looked
through some of those cited above, and couldn't find any where the <rb> element
wasn't just a waste of the author's time.

Note that despite repeated claims to the contrary, none of the browsers
actually support <rb> any differently than any other random element like <foo>.
(For example, try <ruby><rb>base<rt>annotation</ruby> in the live DOM viewer.
Notice how the <rb> element does not close the <rt> element.)

Is there any reason that <span> doesn't already provide all of the power that
authors need here?
