<rb> is used to delimit the base text component of a
<ruby> annotation, i.e. the text that is being annotated. One
<rb> element should wrap each separate atomic segment of the base text.
|Permitted content||As a child of a |
|Tag omission||The end tag can be omitted if the element is immediately followed by an |
|Permitted parents||A |

This element only includes the global attributes.
<rb>element is used to separate out each segment of the ruby base text.
<rb>is not an empty element, it is common to just include the opening tag of each element in the source code, so that the ruby markup is less complex and easier to read. The browser can then fill in the full element in the rendered version.
<rt>element for each base segment/
<rb>element that you want to annotate.
In this example, we provide an annotation for the original character equivalent of "Kanji":
<ruby> <rb>漢<rb>字 <rp>(</rp><rt>kan<rt>ji<rp>)</rp> </ruby>
Note how we've included two
<rb> elements, to delimit the two separate parts of the ruby base text. The annotation on the other hand is delimited by two
Note that we could also write this example with the two base text parts annotated completely separately. In this case we don't need to include
<ruby> 漢 <rp>(</rp><rt>Kan</rt><rp>)</rp> 字 <rp>(</rp><rt>ji</rt><rp>)</rp> </ruby>
The output looks like so:
The HTML above might look something like this when rendered by a browser without ruby support:

<ruby> element for further examples.
