Hello Again, I have figured out that a small set of characters (normal english ones), have their superscript notation available in unicode and therefore it is possible to convert them into their HEX equivalents. Now, I have an XML Document where there are <sup> tags. Are these to be treated as unicode markup? or how do we derive the superscript notation for a character that is enclosed by this tag? And how can we determine if this <sup> tag is not a part of normal markup I was planning on reading the XML as an input stream encoded in UTF-8. Would I be able to differntiate the <sup> as a superscript tag or a general markup one... I am not sure if I have explained myself particularly well.. but if there are question, please ask.. i shall try and be more comprehensible. Thanks!
If I understand your question, <sup> in your document is an ordinary XML tag - nothing magic about it. Perhaps the document is intended to be used with a matching XSLT that translates the contents into the special characters, or maybe just uses the HTML <sup>. Bill
