) has changed between versions 1.1d1 and 1.1d2. The
intent of the JATS Standing Committee is to follow the lead of the W3C HTML5 specification in how to
model Ruby. HTML5 changed between the two drafts
of JATS, and the JATS Standing Committee
chose to follow the new HTML5 model, even though it was not the same and not backwards compatible
with JATS Version 1.1d1. In the new model for <ruby>
, only a
single Ruby textual annotation (<rt>
) is allowed on a given Ruby base
). The previous model allowed multiple annotations to cover a
single Ruby base.
In this Tag Set, the use of ruby parenthesis (<rp>) to
separate the Ruby base from the textual annotation is forbidden.
