How do I create a superscript for text replacement?  I found under System Preferences, Language and Text and select "text" tab, you can enter characters/symbols that you want to replace with other text.  For example, when I type 1st, 2nd, 3rd, I would like the st, nd, and rd to superscript and I can't figure out how to do that so I can enter it into the text replacement field.  There has to be a simple solution to this, but I can't figure it out!  Any help would be appreciated.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
