Smaller font and ascending/ descending words.... how?!

I noticed some people write in a font that is smaller than the standard in their signatures or comments or journal entries. How do you do that? Some HTML code?

Also, some people make words sort of hang lower than the previous word or ascend higher... how is all this text decoration done?!

<*sub*> and </*sub*> without the *. That makes small text that's lower. <*sup*> and </*sup*> makes higher text

If you want ascending or descending text put multiple sups/subs inside each other.

For example.

That is made with this code: You have to make sure you close all of your tags (/sup) But as you can see, the text gets smaller and small because sup and sub are used for footnote, endnotes and in-text notes in formal documents.
