Definition and Usage
The <ruby> tag specifies a ruby annotation.
Ruby annotations are used for East Asian typography, to show the pronunciation of East Asian characters.
Use the <ruby> tag together with the <rt> and/or the <rp> tags: The <ruby> element consists of one or more characters that needs an explanation/pronunciation, and an <rt> element that gives that information, and an optional <rp> element that defines what to show for browsers that not support ruby annotations.
The numbers in the table specifies the first browser version that fully supports the element.
