Subject: Re: [dita] Groups - Proposal 13118: Ruby domain, DITA source uploaded


My reading of the 10/2012 HTML5 spec is that <ruby> may have either text or
<ruby> as its first child, followed by any number of <rt> and <rp> elements,
as specified in this RNC pattern:

ruby.content =
  ((text | 
    (rp |

Is that your understanding of the current rules?

That is, that the text to which the parent <ruby> applies may itself have a
nested ruby annotation.

(For readers not yet familiar with RNC notation, "text" is a keyword
corresponding to #PCDATA in DTD syntax, but in RNC patterns the use of
"text" does not require the use of a repeating OR group as for DTDs, so you
can specify precisely where text content is an isn't allowed. Do not confuse
the RNC keyword "text" with the DITA element type <text>".)
