I'm going to use this code (if no objection from the reviewer, though):

  ruby {
    display: ruby;
  }
  ruby > rp,
  ruby > rbc > rp,
  ruby > rtc > rp {
    display: none;
  }
  ruby > rbc {
    display: ruby-base-container;
  }
  ruby > rtc {
    display: ruby-text-container;
  }
  ruby > rb,
  ruby > rbc > rb {
    display: ruby-base;
    white-space: nowrap;
  }
  ruby > rt,
  ruby > rtc > rt {
    display: ruby-text;
  }
  ruby > rt,
  ruby > rtc,
  ruby > rtc > rt {
    font-variant-east-asian: ruby;
    text-emphasis: none;
    white-space: nowrap;
    line-height: 1;
  }
  ruby > rt,
  ruby > rtc {
    font-size: 50%;
  }
  ruby,
  ruby > rb,
  ruby > rt,
  ruby > rbc,
  ruby > rtc,
  ruby > rbc > rb,
  ruby > rtc > rt {
    unicode-bidi: isolate;
  }

It is a bit long, but it seems that this could match what the HTML spec
wants us to do.
