Description Danny B. 2010-07-22 12:38:44 UTC
Although there are A+ and A- buttons aside, A^ and Av buttons are confusing - they rather imply changing of font size than inserting sup/sub.

Images like and should be used instead where the "X" should be normal and "2" bolded to emphasize the important part of the image. Such images are common in random editors so people are used to them rather than to those there now.

Unassigning default assignments.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2013-09-25 16:17:47 UTC
Note that [[mw:Extension:VisualEditor]]'s toolbar uses icons more along the lines suggested ('x' with super/subscript '2').

It might be nice to update WikiEditor's icons with these.
