    Small Letters in Chemical Equations

    Never had to ask an HTML/CSS question before, but not sure about this. How can I get the numbers in a chemical equation to be lower down than the letters (like the 2 in CH2O here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formaldehyde).

    sup and sub


    Code:
    CH<sub>2</sub>O


    Code:
    E=MC<sup>2</sup>

    You want to use sub for chemicals
    Code:
    CH<sub>3</sub>OH → H<sub>2</sub>CO + H<sub>2</sub>
