More about: Superscript and subscript text
1. To avoid spaces around the super- and subscripted text, square brackets
[ ... ] have to be used. The above example then should be rewritten as:
Global warming in the 21[^st^] century is mostly caused by CO[~2~] in the atmosphere.
Another example, a chemical formula:
Calcium borate: Ca[~3~](BO[~3~])[~2~]
Which generates “Calcium borate: Ca3(BO3)2”.
