What is a superscript and how is it different from a classic index?
Both the superscript and the subscript they are a symbol, a letter, a number and even a phrase that is displayed with a size smaller than the letter used in the text. This denotes that there is a different function and that it must be read differently.
The superscript is placed above the text or number, while the subscript is located below.
