Unicode should then legalize the use of preformatted superscripts in Latin script. 
This convention appears to root back in medieval Latin, for which Unicode have 
added all required superscripts. Interoperable digital representation of modern 
languages may differ in policies, but it does not in principles.

As of practice, a sample layout provides access to all existing small superscript
Latin base letters on live key positions:

The 'ᵗʰ' sequence is on key E12, level 1B (with AltGr/Option):

And a ‹Superscript› dead key is on key C02 [S].
