# [Tex/LaTex] Vertically aligning textsuperscript and textsubscript together

subscriptssuperscripts

I would like to show both super and subscript together some text.

I tried this sometext\textsuperscript{1}\textsubscript{2}

But 2 does not show up right below 1.

Thanks for your help. Also how can I show 1 & 2 in front of sometext as well.

regards
Aku

I tried some both the answers posted below and here is the attachment. I was trying to put 2 digit number 16 and 32 in superscript and subscript.

without using directly math and with colors:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fixltx2e}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\def\SPSB#1#2{\rlap{\textsuperscript{\textcolor{red}{#1}}}\SB{#2}}
\def\SP#1{\textsuperscript{\textcolor{red}{#1}}}
\def\SB#1{\textsubscript{\textcolor{blue}{#1}}}

\begin{document}
\huge
sometext\SPSB{1}{2} more text

sometext\SP{1} more\SB{2} text\SP{1}

\end{document}
