Woudn't a MathML or LaTeX plugin for the wiki handle it much better?

+1 to this one, too.

It would but it goes against Cover the common things people need. IMO, it is very common.

Let's be bold and include the markup in Creole0.4.

Can you maybe backup your opinion with some actual examples?

I, for one, feel inconvinced -- haven't seen superscript in other context than math and chemistry for ages.

In a non mathematical context, I use it mostly for units of measurement i.e. square meter m^2^. I also use it for orders of magnitude and to express large numbers 1,342 x 10^14^.
