# Superscript Text in Variables

You can use variables for many different types of changeable content, but one of the most popular uses is for product names and company names. With these, you may want to add superscript text to the variable, for example, to add a trademark TM after the product name.

To add superscript text to a variable:

1. Create or edit a variable set (see Create a Variable Set).

2. In the variable set, create an XML variable and give it a name, for example, ProductNameTM.

3. Set the value for the XML variable. The value is called a variant. As this is an XML variable, include the inline <superscript> element. For example:

ACME<superscript>TM</superscript> 1000

4. Insert the variable in your topics as needed.
