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.

    Tried:

    mm<sup>2</sup>/s
    mm^2^/s
    mm~2~/s

    Likewise for subscript:

    H<sub>2</sub>

    ...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 https://gist.github.com/molomby/9bc092e4a125f529ae362de7e46e8176 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.
