I guess this is the same problem as Ian described... from the ML by Konstantin:

  1. There is a problem with subscript rendering with large font sizes (overlap of idexes and element symbols). Coudn't it be done using html syntax?

Discussion

  • I don't think that superscript and subscript are sufficiently powerful for our purposes, as we need all 8 'compass point' positions (N, NE, E, SE, S, ...).

    The overlap of the text background is a problem, and should be fixed by having configurable margins for both element symbols and symbol annotations.
