HTML <rp> tag

Definition

The <rp> tag is used to provide parentheses or other content around a ruby text component of a ruby annotation and is shown as a fallback when browsers don't support ruby annotations.

The <rtc> tag must be nested within the <ruby> tag and be positioned either immediately before or after an <rt> or <rtc> element.

The <rp> tag was introduced in HTML5.

Example


<ruby>
  伦 <rp>(</rp><rt>lún</rt><rp>)</rp><rp>(</rp><rt>dūn</rt><rp>)</rp>
  <rtc> London</rtc>
</ruby>
