r12a has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/jlreq:

== How to handle multisyllable/multiword ruby annotations in Japanese ==
My reading of the CSS Ruby spec is that if you set ruby-align to space-around (which is the default) and a single annotation for a single base contains two words in, say, Latin text (yes, i know it's probably very rare), then justification would be applied, causing one word to appear to the left, and the other to the right, with possibly a large gap between.

Here is an example i use for the same question to the clreq folks at https://github.com/w3c/clreq/issues/125:


My suspicion is that actually one would expect the Latin text to remain centred, like this (imagine this was in Japanese):


Is this correct?
