Description Eido Inoue 2007-06-11 20:45:12 EDT
Description of problem:
1. Ruby is a W3C standard.
<http://www.w3.org/TR/ruby/>

2. Ruby is part of the XHTML 1.1 standard.
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/changes.html#a_changes>

5. A mozilla add-on exists for both Firefox and Seamonkey which is stable.
<https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1935>

3. Ruby is supported in IE:
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/objects/ruby.asp>

4. Ruby (aka furigana) is an essential part of Japanese, and could be considered
a I18N requirement. Other applications that deal heavily with text processing,
such as OpenOffice and MS Office, support Ruby (even in English). It is also
used (to a much lesser extent) in other languages, such as Chinese.

6. Some distros are including it in their mozilla/firefox/seamonkey RPMs.

Steps to Reproduce:

Use this XHTML 1.1 test code (ruby-test.xhtml):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head><title>Ruby Test</title></head>
<body>
<p>Japanese often eat fish on vinegared rice, which is called
<ruby xml:lang="ja">
  <rbc class="kanji"><rb>&#x5BFF;</rb><rb>&#x53F8;</rb></rbc>
  <rtc class="reading"><rt>&#x3059;</rt><rt>&#x3057;</rt></rtc>
  <rtc class="annotation"><rt rbspan="2" xml:lang="en">Sushi</rt></rtc>
</ruby>
in Japanese.</p>
</body>
</html>
  
Actual results:
Everything on one line.

Expected results:
The reading should be above the kanji, and the annotation should be below the kanji.

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-12-20 11:47:22 EST
We just updated the Firefox version in Fedora/development from 2.0 to a 3.0
pre-release version, which improves performance, memory usage, and fixes many
bugs and crashes.

Closing as CANTFIX since we aren't fixing bugs filed against 2.0 now that 3.0 is
in.  If this bug is still present in rawhide using a Firefox 3.0 version, please
re-open this bug.

Thanks and Happy Holidays
