Using WXP home system. I cannot find any way to print C squared as in Einstein's formula. E=MC2 isn't right as it simply means MxCx2.
Insert - symbol
select ² from the list
Again using word
Press and hold the Ctrl and Shift keys then press the +/= key and let go of
the three keys.
Now type in the desired exponent.
Repeat the Ctrl-Shift-+/=
combination to return to "normal".
Alternatively... Highlight the character(s) (e.g. 2), format, font, superscript, OK.
Thank you for your suggestion. I'm afraid that in Outlook Express I cannot find 'Insert' anywhere so cannot select 'Symbol'. There must be someway around this for someone who isn't an expert?
I'm not using Word by the way but use Open Office instead. 'Insert' there doesn't contain 'Symbol' or anything similar.
I'm afraid that highlighting the character etc doesn't work either as 'font' produces no 'superscript' in OE.
The only way I could resolve this using the two suggestions received was to reinstall Word and then save the document to the web. Both suggestions worked and thank you both again for sending them. Open Office though good has it's limitations.
If all you wanted was C², you could have saved yourself a lot of bother by just cutting and pasting from Fruit Bat's original reply (I've just done it into OE and it works fine).
Open Office does superscript see also Chemical formulae in open Office
Thank you Woolwell. Most helpfull.
