I have looked through all of the comments and I am not quite finding anything related to my question concerning reference numbers.
I have looked through several of my reference books and googled superscript reference numbers before words and I can't seem to find what I am searching for.
I am transcribing a lesson that it is using superscript numbers immediately preceding words at the beginning of sentences. The sentences are in a paragraph. The purpose of these numbers refer to what number the sentence is in the paragraph in order for the student to answer questions to follow.
I know how to do a superscript number before a word but I am unclear as to whether I need to include a space between the number and the word or place them right up next to each other as shown in print. In print there is no space between the raised number and the first word of the sentence.
However if I put the number right up next to the word it is changing the word as shown in my examples below.
Example a raised #2 preceding the word "It"is changing "It" to appear to be the letter "X"
Example a raised #3 preceding the word"Not" is changing the word "Not" to appear to be the letter "N"
Thank you so much for your assistance.
