I believe this one of those situations in which you need to modify the character format's properties in MIF, to set the baseline position high enough to satisfy your requirement.
Modifying the superscript setting in Text Options affects all superscripts anywhere they appear in the file or book. If there are no other superscripts in your document set, this could be acceptable. There was a recent thread, either on this list, or on the Adobe FrameMaker User-to-User Forum, that discussed importing a MIF fragment into a FM file. The problem is that it's not a standard way to work, so all users need to be informed of how to use the technique. You may prefer to insert the TM either as a single character or a variable a single character, rather than combined with the terms it's attached to, so that at the final stage of editing, you can find each instance to select it, then manually apply the "micropositioning" technique usually done in graphics - Shift+arrow key to move the selection up by one pixel at 100% zoom. NOTE: If you apply the manual microposition to a character, then save the file as MIF, you'll have the settings needed to include in the MIF fragment for importing, if you choose that method. ________________ Regards, Peter Gold KnowHow ProServices
