    There are loads of them. You just need to know where to find them. Usually they can be located in the first post in a pinned thread about LaTeX:

    Enjoy :D

    Edit: I just read your question again. oops

    Well most of it is standard BBCode:

    The there is the super- and subscripts [ sub]text[ /sub] and [sup ]text [/sup ] (Whichout the spaces)

    do you know of any commands which are related to math?, i.e ive seen already someone using subscripts for x^2 and other neat stuff, which are built in.

    x [ sup ] 2 [ /sup ] maybe? x2 Yep works :smile:, without the spaces of course.

    is this the only feature with supscripts which has any connection to maths?
