I've hacked together a derivative of the JLU script that should work rudimentarily as a proof-of-concept. You can download it from this pastebin link and install it however you usually install userscripts in your browser. I haven't tested this besides in Chrome, so if it doesn't work in another recent browser, let me know.
Basically, I removed support for ...
I think it would be a nice option when you particularly want to discuss the pronunciation of a character, but I wouldn't use it regularly.
To help people visualize what it would look like, I posted an example of pinyin in ruby text at GitHub. If the feature supported converting zhong1wen2 to zhōngwén that would make it easier to use.

There are some problems with the question:
It's asking for resources, since it states "where to learn Chinese". This is off topic at this moment, but even when the question was posted, the situation was similar since we already have a question about collecting ...
Based on our current roadmap, this isn't work that we will take on, as it doesn't coincide with functional areas that we plan to improve in the near future. We recognize that time and thought was put into this request, but unfortunately, we can't prioritize it at this time.
As a comment on the status-declined flag, I want to clarify that this is not a browser bug.
Some Unicode characters have different shapes for different languages. Yes, those are characters with the exact same code point, yet they have different shapes. The browser can only make the correct choice on what to display (what font to use) if it knows the ...
To fix this in Firefox, you need to do two things:
Go to Preferences → Content → Languages → Choose... and add "Chinese/China [zh-cn]" as a language. Make sure you add zh-cn and not zh. If your main language is not Chinese, you may want to add this at the bottom of the list. Keep English or whatever your main language is at the top. Now restart Firefox (...
