Changes in 1.06
Added more abbreviations and added a check for KOMA, with which it is incompatibe.

Changes in 1.05
1. Added option to allow the tfm containing the superior figures to be specified by an abbreviation.
2. Modified code so that options supspaced and raised actually do what they are claimed to do.

Changes in 1.04
1. Corrected the code to eliminate an unwanted space following the footnote mark.

Changes in 1.03:
1. Changed code so that footnotes within minipages are not handled using superior figures, but use whatever was determined by \thempfootnote and the existing \@makefnmark.

Changes in 1.02:
1. libertinesups now points to a snapshot taken from LinLibertineO, and no longer depends on any other Libertine package.

The package provides one superior figures font drawn from the Linux Libertine collection---installation requires enabling superiors.map. The default superior figures font is distributed with newtx, and provides figures based on STIX superior figures, compatible with Times and other heavy fonts.

Any existing fonts collection, such as might be constructed by otfinst, may be used provided it has a complete set of superior digits.

superiors – Attach superior figures to a font family

The package allows the attachment of an arbitrary superior figures font to a font family that lacks one. (Superior figures are commonly used as footnote markers.) Two superior figures fonts are provided—one matching Times, the other matching Libertine.
