I just realized I may not be answering the correct questions! Are you
really asking how to display superscripts, fractions, etc., say in a print
function? If you know the Unicode code point for the symbol you wish to
generate you can use the chr() function. But this sounds like you are
going to quickly get into font size issues and placements in the case of
fractions. Surely wxPython has ways of dealing with these?
Sorry about the earlier response. Didn't mean to underestimate you!
