Ruby text

rt

The rt element is used within a ruby element to place small pronunciation marks next to an East Asian language character.

A ruby element without any rt elements is meaningless, therefore it is considered to be a required element.

On the other hand the rb, rp, and rtc elements are all optional.

Example

ツルの <<ruby 恩 <<rt おん>> >> <<ruby 返 <<rt がえ >> >> し

ツルのおんがえ 
The Crane of Gratitude
