Ruby text is said to be rendered "above or immediately before the base text'. The word 'before' here is a technical usage meaning above horizontal text or to the right of vertical text. This is not clear to the reader of this technique, and should be made so.

The sentence "A Ruby annotation that gives the meaning of the base text usually follows the base text" is also not clear. It should say that sometimes Japanese uses ruby related to the meaning of text on the other side of the base text (visually) from the phonetic annotation.
