incorrectly rendered ruby looks like it's under the characters of the previous

This issue seems easy enough to solve. The first issue is that the fallback
font can't be changed, so that when someone uses the standard font for
OpenOffice some Japanese characters are rendered differently than others.
(However, the placement of ruby characters is "proper"). The second (and most
important) issue is that when the font is changed to a Japanese font, the ruby
characters appear rendered above the vertical ascent, and not below it (as they
should be).

The simplest fix I can imagine is the addition of an "offset" box to the Asian
Phonetic Guide, like the one in Microsoft Office 2007.

After a quick glance at what might be required to do this myself I realize I
have no hope of accomplishing this on my own. But for various reasons (see
attachment) the current ruby support is nearly unusable; for example. it makes
it look as if the rubies are placed under the Japanese characters on the
proceeding line.

Changing line spacing does not solve this problem, it merely clips the ruby
characters (which is what led me to believe they are being incorrectly rendered
above the vertical ascent of the font.)

Ruby characters should be rendered inside the font space, and failing that we
need an offset control which controls how close the ruby is rendered to the
baseline. Please help! This is a game breaker for Japanese, I can't use this
program to write a book which requires Japanese Ruby and I don't know what else
to do.
