Subject: Re: Here is a new version of the Ruby proposal

Hello all,
I asked Felix's committee to look at our Ruby proposal for DITA 1.3.  His response is below. I would recommend that we wait until the next update of the spec.

Dear JoAnn, all,

apologies for the late reply, due to holiday and travel. I shared this within the W3C i18n working group. There was no official review (again due to absence of people), but some people stated the same opinion: the DITA ruby proposal looks like aligned with the HTML ruby definition. But that Ruby definition in HTML5 is not stable yet, so it might be a good approach to postpone Ruby in DITA until final Ruby solution is created for HTML5.

To decide about this, it also might be relevant for you that the ePub community working in IDPF and in W3C in the new digital publishing interest group
is also closely aligning with HTML5 in this area (and others). For ease the adaptation of generation workflows DITA > HTML or DITA > ePub3 (=based on HTML5), the alignment might help as well.

Below are some links about the work currently going on around the Ruby revision. Let me know if you have more questions.

Requirements for Japanese Text Layout
Particularly relevant sections include:

HTML Ruby Markup Extensions spec

Use Cases & Exploratory Approaches for Ruby Markup
latest editor's draft at http://www.w3.org/International/docs/ruby/

4) No 3) references "Ruby extension markup"
which provides various examples of use of ruby that can be used as a starting point for testing and documenting
