It means that a white space before a sub/superscript marker is invalid.
In that case, we can also use "\nbsp" entity instead of {}. It's longer,
but more standard.

Another option would be to change syntax for underline, doubling the
underscore characters:


The other advantage is that it may be less ambiguous if we ever allow
text markup within words.
