Is this OT ruby feature to be applied when e.g. a <ruby></ruby>
tag is encountered in HTML / XML? Or is this supposed to be for
a whole different mechanism? MSIE5 already seems to recognise
the <ruby> tag in HTML and formats text appropriately.

This seems to work with text of different scripts so I don't
see why it can't be used for tonal annotations.
