You could try to force the superscripting with inline CSS. That's a kludge.

Hi All,

I hope someone has some wise suggestions for this.

I am viewing HTML files automatically generated by a contractor for us.

There are superscripted numbers (for references) throughout. From time to time, some of the superscripts are NOT superscripted. I've looked at the code and its clean.

But the problem is repeatable in Google Chrome and IE 8 and IE 10 on XP and Windows 8. (two different and unrelated computers)

Now here is the killer:

The contractor in the USA cannot repeat the problem when they view the files.

How do I proceed to figure out WHY and to get the display correct?

Thanks in advance,
