Hi David,

Thank you for the feedback. If you can look at the picture in the spec[1] and that looks the same way as you see in what you have there, I don't see any problems at all. If they look differently from the picture, it'd be appreciated if you can scan the materials and post to the ML.

Koji san

There's one other use of Ruby, combined with emphasis marks - For people studying Japanese as a foreign language, teaching materials often include both Furigana (i.e. Ruby) as well as emphasis marks, for particular parts of a text. Would this be a problem?
