Superscript and subscript in forum posts?

  • Hi,

    How do you add super or sub script to forum posts? Things get a little messy and can be unclear when using the ^ character. Nothing mentioned in the markdown spec reached through the 'COMPOSE ?' link on the top right of the editor text entry window.



    Likewise for subscript:


    ...there is also no category for issues with this website.

    Looks like <sup> isn't supported by the forum software, however for superscript and subscript digits 0-9 you can use the corresponding Unicode glyphs, for example. E=mc² and CO₂. See for a list of them. There is a possibility that some forum users may not be using Unicode fonts and so may not see them, but I think should be unlikely these days.
