The current spec says:
Emphasis marks are drawn exactly as if each character was assigned the
mark as its ruby annotation text with the ruby position given by
text-emphasis-position and the ruby alignment as centered.

And in CSS Ruby Layout module, there is rule in UA sheet:
"font-variant-east-asian: ruby;". Should this font variant also be
applied to the emphasis marks? The current spec seems to answer yes
unintentionally.

I think the spec should make it clear whether the emphasis marks
should be drawn in ruby variant.
