I did some quick testing re ruby support:
IE >=5 supports 'simple ruby' (see the spec http://www.w3.org/TR/ruby/ )
NN and Opera don't support ruby as far as I can tell (I have v7 of NN,
and v6.04 of Opera) but will produce the ruby text in parens as per the
fallback described in the spec
Amaya is supposed to support simple and 'complex' ruby, but I havent'
tested it properly
