Hello PF,

I couldn't find the info by googling, but I need to know: how do I, while writing in a textbox like this one, put things in subscript and superscript (but without using the and commands of PF like I did here)?

Thanks

Latex generates less smooth $_\text{subscript}$ and $^\text{superscript}$

It depends on where you are posting. There are html tags for subscript and superscript but they will not work if html is not activated for the place where you are posting.
