Hi Cor,

The issue must have something to do with font embedding and not with 
the settings of superscript since you get the proper result in 
Scribus and not in the PDF.

For my part, I have never encountered such problem.

I would suggest you redo the PDF making sure the "Embed all fonts" is 
checked in the Font tab of the PDF export dialog.

See if this works. Otherwise, get back to us!
