r12a has just labeled an issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts
 as "i18n-tracking":

== [css-ruby-1] Multiple latin words alignment ==
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-ruby-1/#valdef-ruby-align-space-between
space-between/space-around

I think it would be useful to have some text, or 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.  

That could leave a good sized gap in the middle. 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-004.html

which shows that Firefox leaves a gap between the two words, but that 
Internet Explorer stretches the inter-character spacing to avoid the 
large gap in the middle.   

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