Dear Nick Cox and listers,

Thank you for your reply and forgive me for my poor English.
My interest was on the first two as indicated in the subject line
of this mail. Namely,

> 	superscript -1. 

For serious graphs including 3-dimensional ones, I can now 
utilize SigmaPlot 3.0 (, the product of about 10 years ago 
when its maker had not been engulphed by SPSS,) where fonts
can be controlled in each text boxes including subscripts
and superscripts.
Now as Stata has clear graphs, and "schemes" is heard to be
prospective, I want to know the method for controll fonts.

Thank you, please notice us if you find a good method.
And for the chr(#) technique, I will drill it from now on.

Best Regards,
