Kobo and interlinear epub documents

I currently have a Kindle Paperwhite for language learning but find it slow and tedious to look up individual words. So I looked into interlinear texts and found this thread by @Doitsu as well as source code to generate interlinear epub documents through Google translate.

Now I'm considering getting a Kobo Libra H2O but I'm wondering if they support interlinear books. Or does maybe KOReader support it if I install it on Kobo?

I ran into this a couple of years back and thought it looked interesting. I played with Doitsu's original idea of using <ruby> since I knew that worked with Kobo's webkit based renderer. I converted his original to an epub3 document and using this in combination with Kobo's alternate renderer worked quite happily after sending it to my Kobo using the KoboTouchExtended driver to send as a kepub. I've attached a screenshot from a Kobo Forma.

Edit: Finding that document makes me realize that I really need to do some cleanup.
