Cleaner style for sub and sup tags

Cleaner style for sub and sup tags

Short, concise description of the idea
Including the sub or sup tags in text makes lines space unevenly, a little CSS can fix that.

Full description of the idea
Using sub or sup tags causes the line in which that text is included to be taller, which causes lines of text to space unevenly.1 That makes text look worse when using sup tags for footnotes, for example. That can be fixed with CSS without reducing the readability of subscript and superscript text.2 That change should be included in the default comment page CSS (and possibly the CSS for some of the journal styles as well).

1 Like this paragraph, I assume, but I can't preview entries entered with the suggestions form... someone should suggest that as a feature.
2 Like the example here.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Better appearance when using subscript and superscript in text.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Might interfere with custom CSS designed to do the same thing.
  • Cross-browser issues?
