You are already ‹ruby›fied

In the Archive of Our Own admin_post update posted yesterday, it's announced that AO3 now supports <ruby> elements. This is very good news, and Ode to the Third World has been updated accordingly so that its Fist of the North Star reference is now HTML native.

This marks now all of AO3, PC and WAAPT all supporting furigana annotations. Beware if I show around your place. Soon, you shall be <ruby>fied.

The announcement thread has also been updated.

The Case for Furigana

This is largely a rewriting of the original case I lifted for the use of ruby / Furigana annotations in English for story writing, such as fanfics, originally submitted for the PokéCommunity forum. Only now it's reformatted and made publicly available in order to support the feature request in other communities and cases.

The idea is, English is good at taking stuff from other languages. Why not take then from East Asian languages the concept of annotations to enhance pronunciation, semantic meaning and other features of text communication?

This is a test. If it's successful… I guess I have an excuse for doing stuff.
