Can there be support for superscripting in SO chat? Possibly with a syntax such as:
My birthday is On the 27^^th^^ of February
It will be quite awesome. Thanks.
Just use the well-known Unicode transforms:
That way you can have 1ˢᵗ 2ⁿᵈ 3ʳᵈ 4ᵗʰ without needing HTML’s clumsy 1st 2nd 3rd 4th.
Wouldn’t you rather enter
Plus the font’s superiors always look better than the HTML jiggery. HTML superscripts usually screw up the linespacing, but the font’s superiors are guaranteed to never do that.
