    There is also a Firefox-Addon called Furigana Inserter, which is very helpful, once you get it to work. http://code.google.com/p/itadaki/

    I recently changed from firefox 3.6 to firefox 4.0, and sadly, the add-on is still not updated for this peculiar version. So, rikai-chan users, do not change your firefox version ! :(
