The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Ruby Layout 
Module Level 1:


“Ruby”, a form of interlinear annotation, are short runs of text alongside the 
base text. They are typically used in East Asian documents to indicate 
pronunciation or to provide a short annotation. This module describes the 
rendering model and formatting controls related to displaying ruby annotations 
in CSS.

This update folds in a number of changes and corrections for issues reported 
since the previous draft in 2014 (primarily by Mozilla's implementation team 
and the i18nWG, thank you very much!). It also adds some basic control over

revision over the next year. Issues are currently tracked in two places:

Please review the draft, and send any comments to this mailing list,
<www-style@w3.org>, prefixed with [css-ruby] (as I did on this
message) or (preferably) file them in the GitHub repository at
