Description

Author: ui2t5v002

Description:
Typing x<sup>2</sup> is hard, and looks ugly in the markup. Let's borrow TeX
markup and make x^{2} mean the same thing. (Brackets would be mandatory, however.)

Examples:

x^{3} --> x<sup>3</sup> (powers)
CO_{2} --> CO<sub>2</sub> (carbon dioxide symbol)
1^{st} --> 1<sup>st</sup> (ordinals)
^{2}H_{2}O --> <sup>2</sup>H<sub>2</sub>O (isotopes)
y^{x^{2}} --> y<sup>x<sup>2</sup></sup> (nested powers)

I can't think of anything this would conflict with, can you?

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
