I tried to find an answer in the previous long list of questions but couldn't locate one. When a word is followed unspaced by a series of superscript numbers, each enclosed in brackets, is the superscript indicator repeated for the second number? An example would be something found frequently in Wikipedia, such as California, where the  are in the superscript position. Are both bracketed numbers assumed to be in superscript if the indicator (dots 35) is only placed before the ? Or should the indicator be repeated for the ? What is the extent of "superscript mode"?
In UEB §11.4.1 Definition of an item, it reads "The scope of a level change indicator, that is, the symbol(s) affected by it, is the next "item". An item is defined as any of the following groupings: ..."
The last two bullets on the list apply to this question:
• Any expression enclosed in matching pairs of round parentheses, square brackets or curly braces.
• Any expression enclosed in the braille grouping indicators.
That definition seems to suggest the scope extends to a single grouped number —just the first number  —and doesn't indicate it would apply to the remaining symbols-sequence. Considering the braille reader's perspective, it may be assumed, but not certain the  would also be read as a superscript since it's unspaced from  and followed by a space in print. But I still have doubt and believe the superscript indicator should be repeated for the .
