    I'm trying to integrate sub and super script text into my UILabels for an application. I've read that NSAttributedString can help solve the problem but have yet to find a clear tutorial or help file.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of something that might help or even provide sample code?

    Here's pseudo code to do what I'm thinking:
    NSAttributedString alloc with string
    assign subscript attribute to characters in range 1 - end
    assign superscript attribute to characters that require it
    display the new string in the label

    AFAIK, there's no way to use NSAttributedString with UILabel. NSAttributedString is a container class for strings and formatting but to draw the string on iOS you need to use Core Text.

    I suggest searching the Apple iOS forum for more info.
