Thanks very much for the quick responses! I gave realscripts a try, and
it produces the same effect as xltxtra -- if I understand what Google is
telling me, doesn't xltxtra just use the internals of realscripts?

If the font has labeled its sups incorrectly, is it possible to edit the
font to fix it? Or any other solutions...

Thanks again,
