A long time ago -- when I used to post on here as a guest -- I remember being able to post text between [sup] and [sub] tags, so that I could convert my text to superscript or subscript text. Is there any chance of bringing those tags back? They also make some of the older posts a little hard to read, since it seems that a while ago [sup] and [sub] tags were used a fair amount.

If this isn't possible, then is there a way to type in LaTeX without it starting a new line?

Isn't a[sup]b[/sup] equal with [tex]a^b[/tex] and a[sub]b[/sub] equal with [tex]a_b[/tex]?

No, not quite: on this forum, if you want to write LaTeX without adding a (unwanted) line break, you need to add a pair of empty math tags to the beginning of that line in addition to writing your LaTeX, whereas previously adding the [sup] and [sub] tags was far more convenient.
