    Question subscript/superscript text in richtextbox

    Is it possible to write subscript and superscript text in a richtextbox (or, if not, in a textbox or another WP8 element)?

    Up to now I found a possibility to write sub-/superscript numbers using unicode, but that's not possible for all letters:

    And in Windows 8 apps one can use the typography property for paragraphs in the richtextbox, but this property isn't available for WP8:
    2<Run Typography.Variants="Superscript">3</Run>
    14<Run Typography.Variants="Superscript">th</Run>
    Does somebody know if there is any equivalent to this property for WP8?

    Thank you very much,

    There are a couple of answer on StackOverflow...



    The main thing to remember is that Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 are quite different, especially in terms of XAML support, so text formatting varies a lot.

    Thank you very much theothernt! That works great!

    As I mentioned I use RichTextBoxes in my app, so I got to the following solution:
    <Run Text="ExampleText"/>
    <TextBlock Text="ExampleIndex" Margin="0,5,0,0" FontSize="15"/>
