    Naahhh. Given that superscript-MR is not in Unicode, and that
    superscript is easily done in markup, and without any other context, it
    was a reasonable suggestion, and if it doesn't apply, the questioner can
    come back for more, as happened. Markup wasn't suggested as the only
    solution just a way to go.
    Asking, would have potentially delayed things. And now here we are with
    nothing better than the suggestion to use the registration symbol
