The HTML <rp> element indicates what to show in browsers that do not support ruby annotations (for East Asian typography). It is new in HTML 5.


It is used in conjunction with <rt> and <ruby> elements (the <ruby> element includes one or more characters that need an explanation / pronunciation, the <rt> element gives that information and the optional <rp> element indicates what to show for browsers that do not support such characters.


The attributes it can take are HTML global attributes and HTML event attributes.
