How do I type them? I need to subscript words, not numerals. (Non-techie here, so this probably has a simple solution?) Ditto for superscripts.
You can’t do it in plain text as subscript and superscript are text formatting, but Markdown supports HTML tags, so you can do this:
This is <sub>subscript</sub> text This is <sup>superscript</sup> text
Hope that helps.
Multimarkdown supports super and subscripts as follows:
In some cases you need to put a ^ or ~ at the end of the super/subscript as well.
