What is ruby? Well, here's the answer, Ruby is a template that used to place both Kanji and Katakana into one reading. According to Wikipedia's usage, ruby is used to add a furigana to facilitate easy understanding of Japanese characters. Here's how it's work:

  • Step 1: Add a nihongo template.

{{Nihongo|'''Shinjiro Hayata'''|早田 進次郎|Hayata Shinjirō}}

  • Step 2: Prepare the katakana or hiragana script, like this, ハヤタ シンジロウ
  • Step 3: Put the ruby template

{{Nihongo|'''Shinjiro Hayata'''|{{Ruby|早田|}} {{Ruby|進次郎|}}|Hayata Shinjirō}}

  • Step 4: Place the designated katakana or hiragana into the template but be careful when placing it.

{{Nihongo|'''Shinjiro Hayata'''|{{Ruby|早田|ハヤタ}} {{Ruby|進次郎|シンジロウ}}|Hayata Shinjirō}}

Now here's the result: Shinjiro Hayata (早田ハヤタ 進次郎シンジロウ Hayata Shinjirō?)

Well actually, this type of format is rarely seen on Wikipedia but can be frequently seen on certain anime wikia like Gabriel Miller in Sword Art Online wiki. Anyway, enjoy...
