Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243810
add Japanese Ruby support (make extension part of default build)
Last modified: 2007-12-20 11:47:22 EST
Description of problem:
1. Ruby is a W3C standard.
2. Ruby is part of the XHTML 1.1 standard.
5. A mozilla add-on exists for both Firefox and Seamonkey which is stable.
3. Ruby is supported in IE:
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"
<p>Japanese often eat fish on vinegared rice, which is called
<rtc class="annotation"><rt rbspan="2" xml:lang="en">Sushi</rt></rtc>
Everything on one line.
The reading should be above the kanji, and the annotation should be below the kanji.

Test XHTML code (ASCII) to see if Ruby is working.
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
