    > BTW -- what happens if the emphasized word also has ruby?

    The typical solution for that is to use *both* sides of the

    Vertical text: emphasize on the left (with sidelining) and ruby
    on the right.

    Horizontal text: emphasize on the bottom (with underscoring)
    and ruby on the top.

    I suppose you could find examples of emphasis styling *of* ruby,
    in which case, you'd have (in Japanese vertical text), sesame
    dots applied *to* the ruby as a sideline to them.
