There is no ruby mode, AFAICT.

"in body":
↪A start tag whose tag name is one of: "rp", "rt"

If the stack of open elements has a ruby element in scope, then generate  
implied end tags. If the current node is not then a ruby element, this is  
a parse error.

Insert an HTML element for the token.

It should probably just always generate implied end tags in the fragment  
case. (Is there content depending on it not generating implied end tags  
when parsing normally?)

Actually the spec already doesn't parse it right even with a context  
element, since it only checks the stack of open elements:
