HTML Code for Superscript - Useful for Footnotes and the Trademark Symbol
Last Update: Aug 15, 2015
I discovered this snippet of information when I was searching around the internet, trying to find out how to enter the trademark symbol next to a trade name.
People who are familiar with HTML code will, no doubt, already know this, but for those of you who don't, the HTML code for superscript is <sup></sup> which can be very useful.
If you are writing new content and you want something to appear in superscript, the snippet of code needs to be entered on the "Text" page of your new post/page and not the "Visual" page.
Whatever you want to appear in superscript needs to be placed between the two arrows >< to the right of the word it refers to.
For example, if you want numbered references in the body of your content, to draw your readers' attention to numbered footnotes, or to a list of sources at the bottom of the page and you want to refer them to the first item on the list, then the code would be <sup>1</sup> and the second item <sup>2</sup> and so on.
If you want to place the trademark symbol next to a brand name, the code is <sup>TM</sup>
I hope you find this useful..
