blank containing phrases not correctly rendered as superscripts

jvdh
it seems that superscripts (and subscripts) right now are only working for words but not for (blank containing) phrases? could this be?

    text^1,2^

works fine but

   text^1, 2^

(containing a blank after the comma) renders just verbatim (showing the
carets as part of the formatted output).

I am sure missing something obvious??

Yes, that's true. Superscript and subscript are intentionally restrictive to avoid unintended replacements.

If you want to include a space in a superscript or subscript text, you need to use the space attribute as follows:

text^1,{sp}2^

That convinces the processor that the phrase is contiguous.
