And I would agree with Jukka Korpela and Jon Hanna that abusing
markup like that is not the optimal way to manage that balancing
act. <sup> by itself is obviously easier to compose; it renders
well for more browsing conditions; and, given an intelligent
converter, it converts to other formats much more robustly. Note
that "other formats" includes MS Word, RTF, DocBook, and other
formats besides plain text.
