I guess you probably should use "font size" instead of simply "size" here,
because size may refer to the box size.

In addition, the spec says:

> This level of the specification does not provide a mechanism to control
the size of ruby annotations.

I think we do have mechanism for authors to control the font size of ruby
annotations, which is the font-size property.

It might probably be better to mention that the default style sheet is not
normative, and say that UAs are free to behave a different way for some of
the styles.
