Hi John,

You got me -- I hadn't tested out the effect in CSS. I'm surprised it 
works that way, but given that it does, then if we use CSS in @rend, we 
should know what we mean (although I didn't, cos I'm ignorant and didn't 
do my homework).

Cheers,
Martin

In the example I posted earlier<http://ella.slis.indiana.edu/~jawalsh/tmp/supersubtest.html>, the inner tag is both subscripted and superscripted, and the example is using CSS, so apparently this is what happens with CSS.  The "i" (inner superscript tag) remains on the subscripted plane with the "b,", but is is superscripted *relative tot he "b,".
