I've determined the "source" of the problem (there is more than one):

1. There is no "offset" control as there is in Microsoft Office. As the
interface and name of the interface seems to be a straight up copy of MSO, I
think this is the direction LibreOffice is moving in anyways, and I eagerly
await the next update.

2. The fallback font for Libreoffice does not take into account the language
of the font, and it is using a Chinese font for Japanese (and the Chinese
font does not display Japanese properly). 

The above shows how the ruby characters must look. But it also shows the
fallback broblem; some characters display in gothic typeface when they
should be displaying in mincho. 

The second image, above, shows how the font is supposed to look; but now
that we're using an Asian (Japanese) font, the vertical advance is far too
high! It appears as if the ruby characters are being displayed above the
vertical advance and not below the vertical advance as they rightly should
be. What we need is an offset box that allows us to move ruby BOTH closer to
and farther away from the Japanese.

Does anyone know where in the code this should be done?
