For typing mathematical formulas in emacs I often run into the problem that certain characters are not available as subscript (or superscript) characters. Since I would like a simple solution without involving rendering of LaTeX formulas I was wondering if I could put characters with a small font size to simulate subscript.
Here my questions:
- Can I directly change the font of a displayed character in a buffer (maybe using overlays etc)?
- Can I display character of a buffer using different charsets that involve e.g. the same font but with different font sizes (one for normal character and the other for "subscript").
- Is there a different/easier solution?
Any suggestions are highly appreciated! :)
