I was trying to use superscript to represent exponents in an answer, except they aren't rendering as superscript. Instead it looks the same as subscript.

The problem appears to be a vertical-align: baseline; in the CSS that is forcing it down.

How I'd expect it to appear: expected

How it currently appears for me in Chrome: current

Can we get the <sup></sup> to be superscript again?

This issue was reported on multiple meta sites across the network and was corrected last week. Sorry for the inconvenience.
