My surname is correctly written with the `c' as a superscript -
M<sup>c</sup>Farland, not McFarland.

The superscripted c is as much a part of the correct spelling of my name
as the capital F is.

Is there a way to write a superscripted c without the sup element? Does
this mean the sup element has semantic meaning? Should I just lighten up
about the way my name is written?
