I don't know enough about the technical bits to pick up on the important
details that others have noticed.  But, from a novice point-of-view, I
do want to say that this tutorial looks very 'clean', straight-forward,
well-written, and handsomely designed. I appreciate having the option of
several different views, especially the all-on-one-page view which
facilitates printing.

Nice job, Richard! (Do you supposed you could prepare similar tutorials
for all the specs? ;-)

Subject: New tutorial for REVIEW: Ruby Markup and Styling


Comments are being sought on this tutorial prior to final release.
Please send any comments to www-international@w3.org.

Ruby is a name for small annotations that are rendered alongside base
text. This is especially useful for Japanese and other East Asian
content (ruby is known as furigana in Japanese). The Ruby Annotation
specification provides a way to mark up ruby text, and has been adopted
as an XHTML 1.1 module. Work is under way in CSS3 on mechanisms to
support styling of ruby text. This tutorial will introduce you to the
basic mechanisms, and discuss the current state of the art with regards
to ruby support.
