Superscript T’s only regular use that I’m aware of is as the transpose operator for vectors and matrices. I’m certainly not omniscient, though.
Are we going to attempt to distinguish between characters like these two?
ⁿ (SUPERSCRIPT LATIN SMALL LETTER N Unicode: U+207F, UTF-8: E2 81 BF)
n (LATIN SMALL LETTER N Unicode: U+006E, UTF-8: 6E), with a superscript format applied
