Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

The Chicago Manual of Style. which is perhaps the mostly widely used general style manual in the US, uses 'th' as a suffix without ' or -.
ie, 28th, etc except for 22d ('preferred' to 22nd) and 23d ('preferred' to 23rd).

gives nth, which I use, with *n*th (italic n) as alternate form (when italic is available) and n'th and n-th as 'sometimes used'. I think both of the last two are ugly and that we should use either nth or, since we can, *n*th.  I see that we already have *i*.
