Hello,

Can someone tell my why the \textsuperscript commands in the code below do not generate the expected result. The french "è" in "3ème" or "2ème" is set in standard size and not in superscript as it appears in the attached pdf file. I have no idea if this is a standard LaTex issue or if it is related to XeLaTex. Do i do something wrong or is this a bug ?
