Add support for Japanese - Furigana

Add support for Japanese - Furigana

Japanese appears as a support language option which is great as our school teaches multiple series of Japanese language classes but there is not yet support for Furigana and in order for it to generate in Canvas, the only workaround is to allow for Ruby to be used in the HTML which we aren't able to do as our school does not have an option for this.

It would be helpful to provide additional rich text editor support to allow for this option.

Here's a past conversation but I don't currently see any idea conversation around it yet.

Additionally, whenever I'm copying/pasting Japanese text that has furigana (from something like word or a pdf), the hiragana is transferred to parentheses next to each individual character, so that has to be adjusted manually for readability.

Example:

Text with furigana from word: Screen Shot 2020-10-01 at 8.24.39 AM.png

Copied and pasted from word: 相(そう)談(だん)

More readable version: 相談(そうだん)
