Enter superscripts in Arbortext Editor

Is there a way to enter superscripts in Arbortext Editor? If so, how?

Don't give up! Most DTDs support sub/sup. Try selecting some text and then (from memory) Ctrl-Shift-M. That should let you select from a list of valid markup tags, look for sub/sup and see if that works

This depends on the DTD / Information model you are using. For example in DITA there is the <sup> element to tag characters as superscript. The actual formatting is then controled by the stylesheet used. So the point is - similar to html markup you must tag text parts to be supersript as opposed to "format" as superscript as you would do in a program like Word.

Hope that helps.

Kind regards

Thanks for the response - I have no idea if the DTD &/or stylesheet support superscripts. I can't find any superscript tag in Arbortext Editor so perhaps not.

Thanks Gareth - you are correct - Ctr-Sfift-M does indeed get the superscript tag.
