using -webkit-ruby-position rather than ruby-position seems to help.
See http://www.w3.org/International/tests/test-incubator/bopomofo/

it doesn't seem to position the tone marks though - am i missing
something?

it also produces different results wrt spacing of the characters in the
case of ㄚˋ

and, of course, it doesn't help for positioning the tones in the
non-ruby text.

hope that helps,
