I saw somewhere instructions on how to do superscripts and subscripts. But I can’t find the info now either by browsing topics or by search.

If you know how to do this, please (re)post.

Dammit! The corporate web-bahs have blocked any site with even a whiff of AOLness to it. Would you please C&P the relevant passage?

Please? I’ll be your best friend!

&ltSUB&gtSubscript&lt/SUB&gt = [SUB]Subscript[/SUB]

&ltSUP&gtSuperscript&lt/SUP&gt = [SUP]Superscript[/SUP]

Now, let’s see if I typed all that in without screwing it up!

:frowning: man, that puts my tutoral to shame.

It does not!

Geez, Louie, we’d rather go to you than some stranger.

oooooooops. didn’t work as I thought it would. :o

manhattan: use these <> instead of these (), and follow this example,

(u)manhattan(/u) should look like manhattan

Thanks to all!. I successfully placed a superscript in the MPSIMS folder. I waited, like, 9 hours to do so, but it was worth it.

As to Louie’s self-deprecating comment,

Thanks. :slight_smile:

Hmmm, maybe I should do a sex tutoral over at MPSIMS, since that’s what they all talk about over there now.

Or has that already been done?

Sub and superscripts? Don’t let it steam ya’, just take some H[sub]2[/sub]O and take a view at the code.[sup]1[/sup] OK?
[sup]1[/sup]Use your web browser’s view code feature.

Them’s that can’t do, talk. :slight_smile:

There’s a reason it’s called Mundane and Pointless.

Ignore this.
Pursuing the topics in General Questions today has left me with some questions of my own.

Has the internet broken? Are all search engines bereft of URLs?

I did a quick search today and got a perfectly acceptable answer to my query, but maybe I have Super-Duper-Extra-Cool Internet [SUP]TM[/SUP] , and some of today’s topic posters haven’t yet downloaded the software from <font color=“blue”></font>
