Dear Robin,

Sample something like this?

1. Ruby on Ruby text

<ruby>
   <rb>出発</rb>
   <rp>(</rp>
   <rt><ruby><rb>たびだち</rb><rt>depature</rt></ruby></rt>
   <rp>) </rp>
</ruby>

2. Ruby on Ruby base

  <ruby>
    <ruby><rb>東南</rb><rt>とうなん</rt></ruby>
    <rt>たつみ</rt>
</ruby>

2nd case is appeared in old double-sided ruby use case
(e.g. http://www.w3.org/International/notes/ruby-extension/).

1st case may be useful for historical document where annotations
tends to be complex.

Regards,
