(Excerpt from "The MathML Handbook" by Pavi Sandhu)


<msubsup>base subscript superscript</msubsup>


The msubsup element is used for representing a subscript attached to a base.

By default, the msubsup element automatically increments scriptlevel by 1 and sets displaystyle to false in both subscript and superscript but leaves both attributes unchanged within base.


This element has the two attributes shown in the following table.

Table: Attributes of msubsup.

Attribute Values Default
subscriptshift number v-unit automatic
superscriptshift number v-unit automatic

These attributes have the following meaning:

  • subscriptshift: specifies the minimum amount by which the subscript should be shifted down relative to the baseline of the base expression.
  • superscriptshift: specifies the minimum amount by which the superscript should be shifted up relative to the baseline of the base expression.
