## Re: [Orgmode] Superscripts in LaTeX export

Aloha Carsten, Giovanni, and Nick,


It seems like magic to me, but now my org file correctly exports ^{14}C to LaTeX. The viewers of my beamer slide show will immediately recognize the radioactive isotope of carbon in the frame's title. They will have this pleasure with little effort on my part because org- mode is substantially reducing the amount of time it takes me to put the slides together.

Many thanks,
Tom

Aloha all,


I'm trying to generate $^{14}$C, or an equivalent, from org-mode to represent the isotope of carbon important in archaeological dating.

Reading the manual, I tried this:

** A Brief History of Attempts to Interpret the ^{14}C Dates
*** The ^{14}C Dates

Which, in my #+LaTeX_CLASS: beamer export, yields


\subsection{A Brief History of Attempts to Interpret the \^{}{14}C Dates}
...
\begin{frame}\frametitle{The \^{}{14}C Dates}

The problem seems to be the space before the ^.

This input:

** A Brief History of Attempts to Interpret the x^{14}C Dates
*** The x^{14}C Dates

yields the correct LaTeX:


\subsection{A Brief History of Attempts to Interpret the x $^{\mathrm{14}}$C Dates}
...
\begin{frame}\frametitle{The x$^{\mathrm{14}}$C Dates}


Am I missing something? Or, is the LaTeX export thrown off by the space before ^?

All the best,
Tom
