> --------
> 
> "Ruby" are short runs of text alongside the base text, typically used in
> East Asian documents to indicate pronunciation or to provide a short
> annotation. This specification defines markup for ruby. The
> specification is written so that this markup for ruby can be included as
> a module of XHTML 1.1.

> Status of This Document
> -----------------------
> 
> The W3C Internationalization Working Group (I18N WG), with this 17
> December 1999 Last Call Working Draft, invites comment on this
> specification. The Last Call period begins 17 December 1999 and ends 14
> January 2000.
> 
> This is a W3C Working Draft for review by W3C members and other
> interested parties. It is a draft document and may be updated, replaced,
> or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to use
> W3C Working Drafts as reference material or to cite them as other than
> "work in progress". The W3C will not allow early implementation to
> constrain its ability to make changes to this specification prior to
> final release. A list of current W3C Recommendations and other technical
> documents can be found at http://www.w3.org/TR.
> 
> After last call comments have been addressed, the Working Group expects
> to advance this specification to Candidate Recommendation, and then to
> Proposed Recommendation together with XHTML 1.1, into which it will be
> included by reference. While the actual markup structure will not be
> changed at that point in the process, the I18N WG and the editors will
> make the necessary technical adjustments in notation if such adjustments
> become necessary as a consequence of changes to XHTML 1.1.
> 
> Please send comments and questions regarding this document to 
> (i18n-editor@w3.org). Comments in languages other than English, in
> particular Japanese, are also welcome. Public discussion on this

> Due to its subject matter, and to make the examples more realistic, this

> configuration can improve the situation. Also, great care has been taken
> to serve this document in various character encodings to cover a wide
> range of user agents and configurations.
