r12a has just labeled an issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts
 as "css-ruby-1":

== [css-ruby-1] Treament of multiple Latin words in space-between & 
space-around ==
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-ruby-1/#valdef-ruby-align-space-between

I think it would be useful to have some text, and perhaps another 
illustration, showing what would happen if you have more than one word
 in narrow-cell annotations.  For space-between, my assumption is that
 if you have a two word annotation in Latin script over a longer base,
 the left edge of the word on the left would be flush with the left 
edge of the base, and the rightmost character of the other word would 
be flush with the right edge of the longer item.  

The question is what happens between the two words. That could leave a
 good sized gap in the middle, which is what Firefox does, or cause 
the browser to stretch the inter-character spacing in order to reduce 
the gap between the words, which is what Edge does. There is a test 
for this at:
https://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/run?base=css-ruby-1&batch=css-ruby&test=ruby-align-property/ruby-align-space-between-104.html

Are either of those correct, or is just one appropriate, or is it 
specifically undefined?  Either way, i think the spec should say 
something.
