Seems a lot of foofaraw to (still not evade)
the necessity of starting a sentence with [sub] or [sub][sub] and going from there, mindful that (1) + (-1) == (0)
Still, I !=grok why simple [sup] be gone; [sub] isn't 'gone' (along with some semblance of [big], [small]..)
Something like a Style-sheet designed by a Perlmonk on Bolivian Blue-flake, in a blackout as the UPS chirps-out the remaining seconds
Guess it's all a part of Man *nix, where the how-to definitions are compressed and the execution demands
reinventing your [symbol space?] one-line-at-a-time.
Which is fine.. if one is paid by the hour.
(Could this-all be a conspiracy-of-coders: to make damn-sure the nobody in a Suit could crack it?)
Of Course too! ... entirely trivial compared with the bitchin-99%-boffo, eh?
