The rbc element is a container for rb elements when the markup is complex. There should be only one rbc element inside a ruby container.

Ruby characters are small symbols placed next to text (typically Chinese, Japanese and Korean) to clarify pronunciation. The text to be annotated is the ruby base and the annotation is the ruby text.

The ruby element is used to mark the word you want to clarify.

The rb element means ruby base.

The rbc element means ruby base container (for complex markup).

The rp element means ruby parenthesis.

The rt element means ruby text.

The rtc element means ruby text container (for complex markup).
