------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  There must be a way to support markup up of text annotations of the 'ruby' type.
  
  '''[MI''' What exists in a source document regarding this tag set? For example, ruby text only exists in a target Japanese text. Something like <annotation ruby="required">Bullet Trains</annotation> may be possible, but still the source text won't be able to provide any information about the ruby annotation. I'm simply wondering what impact could be given to the writer's side.''']'''
+ 
+ '''[[RI''' Japanese people may be authors and want to use ruby. In addition, Japanese translators may want to add ruby to their translation. Unless a schema intended for multinational use (eg. docbook, html, etc.) defines a document structure that allows for ruby markup, they will be unable to do so.  English authors using the same schema for authoring English may not use this - although note that ruby annotation is not limited to furigana, and can be used for interlinear annotations in any language. Hope that answers the question. ''']]'''
