Advanced Math/Subscript and Superscript Numbers,


Dear Prof Randy

Do you feel the Subscript and Superscript can also be used accepting negative numbers, fractional numbers, decimal numbers, complex numbers, trigonometric values, logarithm, antilog, Unicode characters  etc other than Whole numbers (Integers) in future applications viz Typography, Chemistry, Physics etc

Examples : -3, 2/3, 3.14, −3.5 + 2i, Sin 30, log 100, antilog 2, (Copyright sign) etc

i.e. Superscripts and Subscript accepting other numbers, characters other than whole numbers.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Pretty much all those examples would be useful for sub and superscripts, especially superscripts. I think MS Word allows you to do at least some of this, even using keyboard shortcuts. There is also an equation editor in Word which does a lot of good stuff like that. Hope this helps.
