Unicode is not for encoding typographical effects such as superscripts or
subscripts (the sups and subs in area U+2070..U+208E are part of a sort of
"archaeological area" of Unicode, which is called Compatibility Characters).
To implement superscripts and subscripts in XML, it is enough to write a
two-line cascading style sheet, plus a single line of code to link the CSS
to the XML document. That worked for me anyway.
