    It’s called the superscript tag. You must type this code into the text editor and not the visual editor:
    Crunchy Green Beans<sup>2</sup>


    Wow, that was such a fast response! Thanks. It workd in the body of the post, but I want to title this post “Crunchy Greenbeans squared” and there is no text editor for the title space.

    I don’t know for certain, but the title may just accept that code by just typing it in. Mostly one cannot modify the titles of posts and pages, but they do accept some html tags and entities. Give it a try! It might work…


    Thanks Tess. It worked. Greatly appreciate the help.
