I believe that we shouldn't emphasise the idea that ruby 
markup/styling can be used for non CJ languages, since it's really 
designed specifically with those in mind (which is why it's called 
'ruby' rather than 'glossing' or 'annotation') and it lacks features 
needed for general glossing.

Appendix A however is an odd beast. As i understand it, subsection A.1
 is the default style sheet referred to in the heading of App A, but 
subsections A2 and A3 are really more akin to guides for content 
authors (not to mention the fact that they don't work for all markup).
  If i'm right, then it seems to me that it's best to use fullwidth 
parens for this example and we can leave it to the content author to 
adapt the code for other languages.  (Note that the content author may
 also choose to use a different type of bracket altogether.)

Also, perhaps we should split Appendix A?
