What is the encoding for the power in the power notation? For example, I want to display the notation as 10 to the power of 6.
I discovered I can use the code as "\u00B1", "\u00B2", "\u00B3" for the power of 1, 2 and 3 respectively. However, starting from "\u00B4" it shows other strange special characters.
Do you gurus have any suggestions on this?
Thanks!

Why use a computer at all?  Just get a piece of paper and write whatever superscript you like next to whatever number you like.

You can write it like this:

10 ** 6

Most people will understand that.

In HTML, you can write 106


Best of luck, ~Ray

I have never actually seen 10 ** 6 but if i saw it i guess i would assume it was to the power of 6. Another notation that (IMO) is more universal is 10^6

The point I was semi-ironically trying to make is that there is no way we can answer this question unless we know in what context the asker wants to display superscripts.  HTML?  PDF? Microsoft Word?  A text file?  A commodore 64?

He was already getting the superscript characters 1-3 from unicode, so I thought it was assumed he simply wanted the unicode characters from 4-9; no?
