First Public Working Draft published: Use Cases & Exploratory Approaches for Ruby Markup

Use Cases & Exploratory Approaches for Ruby Markup[1] looks at a number 
of use cases involving simple and complex ruby, and considers which are

Annotation specifications. Where a use case is not supported by the 
HTML5 model, it provides suggestions about how the markup model could be 
adapted to better support those use cases. In each case, pros and cons 
of the approach are listed, but the document does not attempt to impose 
a particular solution.

The hope is that implementers and standards developers will take the 
information and suggestions in this document as a starting point for 
developing a markup model for ruby in HTML5 that fully supports the use
