    Subscript within CS5?

    stirStudent

      I am currently developing a chemical formula application that receives input from a user directly from a text area. My problem is displaying this input with subscript (eg: H20 with the 2 displayed below the baseline). Subscript can be entered when developing the application, but can it be displayed when the application is running? Is there any way I can apply subscript to numbers that are entered automatically?

       

      Ideally, I would like a student to enter some text, highlight the characters they want in subscript, and then click a subscript button that calls some actionscript. Is this possible? There seems to be lots of people who have had similar problems but no solutions as of yet. Any help is much appreciated.
