Definition and Usage

The <rt> tag defines an explanation or pronunciation of characters (for East Asian typography) in a ruby annotation.

Use the <rt> tag together with the <ruby> and the <rp> tags: The <ruby> element consists of one or more characters that needs an explanation/pronunciation, and an <rt> element that gives that information, and an optional <rp> element that defines what to show for browsers that not support ruby annotations.


Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the element.

Element

The <rt> tag is new in HTML5.


Global Attributes

The <rt> tag also supports the Global Attributes in HTML.


Event Attributes

The <rt> tag also supports the Event Attributes in HTML.


Default CSS Settings

Most browsers will display the <rt> element with the following default values:
