Ruby Annotation (http://www.w3.org/TR/ruby) and
XHTML(TM) 1.1 - Module-based XHTML (http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11)
became W3C Proposed Recommendations on April 6, 2001.

Abstract of 'Ruby Annotation':

"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, in the form of
an XHTML module.

More information about Ruby markup can be found at

XHTML 1.1 is a cleaned up version of XHTML 1.0 Strict, defined using
XHTML Modularization (http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-modularization/),
with the addition of ruby markup as defined in Ruby Annotation.

A Proposed Recommendation is believed to meet the relevant requirements,
to represent sufficient implementation experience, and to adequately address
comments from community reviews. Proposed Recommendations are reviewed by
the W3C Member Organizations.

Ruby Annotation has been produced as part of the W3C Internationalization
Activity (http://www.w3.org/International/Activity) by the Internationalization
Working Group, with the help of the Internationalization Interest Group 
(I18N IG).
Technical and editorial comments should be sent to the publicly archived 
list www-i18n-comments@w3.org.

Regards,    Martin.
