    The SUBSCRIPT TEN (== decimal exponent base) character remains the
    only character that is present in the GOST-10859 standard
    ( and in the character set of
    the Soviet ACPU-128 drum printer but is absent is Unicode.
    Also see the the German character set ALCOR

    It cannot be replaced by SUBSCRIPT ONE + SUBSCRIPT ZERO, because it
    has to occupy one character position for the sake of text aligned for
    a fixed-width font.

    Is there a chance for this character (or a way to request halfwidth
    subscript/superscript characters) to appear in Unicode?
