ooh ruby /ruby
ruby, where are you?

With the useful and needed functionality and the neat little stuffs 
that can be done with Ruby annotation, along with its clear presence 
in HTML5, I wonder where ruby has gone.

Right now IE does basically a fine job with <ruby> but doesn't do <rp> 
and no longer needs <rb>.
Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera do not break when <ruby> is 

Just as a simple example, try this:

<ruby> WWW <rt>World Wide Web</rt></ruby>

Thanks to All and Best Regards,
