Superscript and subscript

Is there any way of formatting text / numbers so they appear as superscript or subscript?

I thought the usual BB codes were [sup] and [sub] but they don't work:

[sup]superscript[/sup] or [sub]subscript[/sub]

Do you mean like xᵌ or xͪ or ᵈx or yᵥ ? No idea.

In the CSS they are part of the reset at the top of this page
view-source styles/prosilver/theme/common.css

So lacking any other rule to redefine them, what you get is plain text.

Thanks for replying. Unfortunately, having no technical knowledge I haven't a clue what your post means! What's a CSS?

Long story short, only the mods can fix this.

Correct, only the Gods of Stooz & Clariman can do this. And I am pretty sure that only the God of Stooz knows how to do this ! To be honest this is a long way down Stooz's to-do list.
