This is a discussion about 馬鹿

Incorrect furigana display

Instead of ば・か , it`s displayed as ばか, i.e. with ばか for 馬 and nothing for 鹿.

Sorry, in this case we don't know which kana applies to which kanji, so we just show the kana left aligned, but ideally it should be shown justified so it appears over the entire word.

Is that the accepted way of dealing with furigana for ateji? Since the characters are chosen for their pronunciation, I would have thought that it wouldn't be too hard to know which character represents which sound (unlike gikun). For instance, ば and か are both valid readings for 馬 and 鹿, respectively. Same goes for 亜米利加.

@SenseiHanzo, yes, I should have added that this case is a bug in my alignment algorithm :)
