 +====== Superiors ======
 +
 +Superiors are small letters and figures, upon the upper part of the [[s:​shank|shank]] of the body, so that they range with the top of the letter to which they belong; as, <​sup>​abcdefgh</​sup>,​ <​sup>​1234567890</​sup>​. they are generally used as references to notes, and occasionally in abbreviated words; as M<​sup>​r</​sup>,​ Master; M<​sup>​rs</​sup>​ Mistress; D<​sup>​o</​sup>,​ Ditto; N°, (Numero,) for Number, and in many other instances; also in contracted words, in the printed Records. //See// [[r:​records|Records]]. [[r:​references|References]]. It would be a convenience if the type founders would cast the , ; : and . to them, as it has not a good appearance, when a point is necessary, to see a comma or any other point used that has been cast for the regular body; it is too large, and does not range in line.
