<sup> ... </sup>

The <sup> tag is used to insert superscript into a text. This allows the correct display of footnotes, math formulas, and scientific notation on a web page. Most browsers reduce the text size by half for the superscript (and subscript), but use the same font face as used for the rest of the text.

However, you can use style sheets and the style attribute to effect the appearance of the text to suit your desires.
The similar sub tag is used to create subscripts.
The closing tag is mandatory.
