Screen magnifiers.

Seriously, as far as I know most don't pick up the relationship (but then
most assistive technologies and browsers are yet to finish implementing HTML
4.0). An exception is probably emacspeak - if it doesn't currently get it
then it is a small XSLT or CSS rule away from being explicit.

It might be worth asking people who are working with East Asian systems,
where Ruby is a common typographical convention, and whence the HTML Ruby
system came as I understand it.

Do you have particular usage scenarios in mind and suggested behaviour?
