ruby was not found in help...
EDIT: In fact I know darn well that both of those _are_ in Word 2007 because by the (oh so obscure) trick of adding 2007 to the previously mentioned Google search I found this file
http://office.microsoft.com/download/af ... 1938681033
which gives what locations in Word 2007 go with what locations in Word 2003.

How is it in the Japanese (or English, even) version of Open Office? I have both, but since I have very little occasion to actually compose anything at all, let alone something requiring furigana, I have never looked into it.
From the Open Office Help:
Asian Phonetic Guide
Allows you to add comments above Asian characters to serve as a pronunciation guide.
These commands can only be accessed after you enable support for Asian languages in Tools - Options - Language Settings - Languages.
To access this command...

1.Select one or more words in the document.
2.Choose Format - Asian Phonetic Guide.
3.Enter the text that you want to use as a pronunciation guide in the Ruby text box.
