Ruby text container

rtc

The rtc element is used within a ruby element to surround rp and rt elements when they are used semantically, rather than as a pronunciation aid.

Enventually this will allow the browser to render kanji with both furigana (above) and English (below). Browser support for the rtc element and the ruby-position CSS attribute is incomplete.

Example

<<ruby <<rb 北風 >> <<rt きたかぜ >> <<rtc North Wind>> >> と <<ruby <<rb 太陽>> <<rt たいよう >> <<rtc Sun>> >>
北風  きたかぜ  North Wind 太陽 たいよう  Sun 
The North Wind and the Sun
