"For the purposes of the CSS ruby model, runs of descendants of ruby  
elements that are not rt or rp elements are expected to be wrapped in  
anonymous boxes whose 'display' property has the value 'ruby-base'."

(That section also says rp should be display:block; shouldn't that be  
display:none instead?)
