I see you are using <ruby>, which, from what I can tell of the specs, is not a required component, so there is no guarantee that it is supported by a reader (and I'd guess it will be unsupported by most readers).

Then you are using "display: inline-table" and "display: table-footer-group", which looks OK, and maybe you can the same using <span class="ruby">, <span class="rb">, etc. instead of the ruby tags, since you are alrady forcing the display type anyway...

The main drawback I see is that you have to translate word by word, which is seldom appropriate. You could translate whole sentences, but then each sentence is a table and does not break across lines.

I really don't see any way to make it look right with current ePUB spec and readers...
