Another minor detail ...

Slide 14: There is a note saying:

    Note: Details of ruby formatting in a Japanese print context can be
    found in JIS-X-4051 ( "Line composition rules for Japanese documents"
    (日本語文書の行組版方法) JIS X 4051-1995, Japanese Standards Association,
    1995 (in Japanese)).

But JIS X 4051:1995 is obsolete now, JIS X 4051 was substantially updated
in 2004 and its title has changed, too.  Especially for ruby, JIS X 4051:1995
only allowed ruby text on the right of a line of vertical text / above
a line of horizontal text (i.e. 'ruby-position' was fixed to 'before'),
so while slide 14 shows an example of placing ruby on both sides, you
won't find any advice to deal with that case in JIS X 4051:1995.
JIS X 4051:2004 deals with that case as well.

So this note should be revised to something like this:

    Note: Details of ruby formatting in a Japanese print context can be
    found in JIS X 4051 ("Formatting rules for Japanese documents"
    (日本語文書の組版方法) JIS X 4051:2004, Japanese Standards Association,
    2004 (in Japanese)).
