This depends on the country's typographical tradition. In French the «o» should always be above the baseline. I'm yet to see a font with a N<sup>os</sup> (and its lowercase n<sup>os</sup>) with a bar under the "os" as was frequent in French lead typography for writing the plural of N° (yes, for simplicity sake I used the degree sign which is on my keyboard, but no superscrit s on my keyboard).On Fri, 1 Apr 2005, Andrew C.

Superscripting is not implied, and in fact many glyphs for the numero sign do not have the "o" as superscript, though a little bit above the baseline (and underlined and in small size).
