is an option for Style which specifies the minimum distance in x-heights to shift subscripts and superscripts.
  • The setting ScriptBaselineShifts->{sub, sup} uses shift sub for subscripts and sup for superscripts.
  • A typical setting is ScriptBaselineShifts->{0.6, 0.9}.
  • The default setting ScriptBaselineShifts->{Automatic, Automatic} shifts subscripts and superscripts by a distance which depends on their height.
