Superscript printout error in MSDS

Dear Team,

We are facing the superscript error for few languages while printing the MSDS.

In English, it is working fine but not working for few languages. As shown below, for English, superscript 3 is correctly refelecting. But, for Portuguese some 'l' character is coming ( which is Wrong ) and for Russian, some 'i' character is getting printed ( which is again Wrong)

can you please guide me , what need to be correct here to overcome this problem.

Thanking You,

    Dear Amol

    UOMs in WWI report are "painful" and "tricky". I try my very best to explain it on "high level".

    1.) example: you have a characteristic in EH&S called "Value" (for e.g. density).

    2.) this characteristic is related to a "UOM". UOMs are defined in SAP basic cutomizing. Now the UOMs need translations per language to be used in WWI (I struggle my self always which table to look at is the right one)

    3.) now you can/will define the UOM only as "g/cm3" and not as "g/cm³"

    There is now easy way in WWI o print the "g/cm3" as "g/cm³" in all languages and what is important you need to use a "suitable" font to do so.

    First guess: please check your UOM. This kind of set up (in relation of WWI) is quite tricky

    Second guess: if you have removed the topic you should use ""g/cm3" in any language. I have never found a suitable way to get the "³" shown in WWI. You will have the same problem if you need to print "²" for e.g. somthing like 100 m²

      Dear All,

      Problem resolved.

      For Superscript, we have adopted a separate coding / lines in WWI.INI file and now it is working fine.

      Thanks a lot Christoph for your great support.
