I second Terry on adding a bit of math, if the browser builders will support
it. It's been a real pain doing technical papers without sub/sup. I can take
putting in big displayed equations as GIF things, but just the need for
sub/sup sometimes causes me to put in a dozen little GIF thingies in a single
"line" of text. Imagine what that does to download time for documents with
lots of technical matter!
