Hello David,

great, thank you for the answer. I checked the documentation, but did 
not completely understand the ruby option.

For good typesetting with ruby it is necessary that the ruby characters 
appear thicker. They should not just be half the size of the base 
character. As far as I know, that is what the ruby option type feature 
is for: select other glyphs which are thicker.

But does fontspec actually support to put the ruby character as inline 

It should look like this:


if you look at the second line of the main text, you see that there are 
some characters between the line.

Does fontspec do this?
