We do mention bopomofo ruby near the start of the document, but the 
markup representation of zhuyin fuhao ruby is trivial - it's the 
placement of ruby text that is problematic. (There are certainly other 
styling related things to consider wrt Japanese ruby that are not 
mentioned in the doc. On the other hand, jukugo is mentioned... So I 
suppose I could add a quick section.)

It would be better to have a shorter example, however. Note that what 
you show below will not work as expected, since the newlines produce 
spaces that separate the base characters.

Since just about everyone I have discussed ruby with has produced 
examples like this, I wonder whether we should consider specifying that 
newline white space in the code should be removed for display?
