I find that for the non-registered trademark marking (superscripted TM), the 
best solution is to use the glyph that is provided in most Windows fonts, since 
that glyph is already scaled and elevated to match the font. The registered 
trademark symbol, on the other hand, does need to be reduced and raised in many 
fonts, including Times New Roman.



The code point for the TM symbol is 0153 in the Windows:Western character set 
for most fonts, which meand you should be able to hold Alt and type 0153 on the 
numeric keypad to get ti (or paste it from the Character Map accessory). If 
you're using Unicode font encoding, you can try code point 2122 (0x99), which 
is what works for Times New Roman.
