Description nenad.steric 2017-03-17 19:44:06 UTC
an imported xls File is displaying supercripts as if they are part of the baseline.

instead of 8 with superscripts 1,2
Calc displays the value "812"

Which is *very* bad if you need the correct value for medical treatment.

Steps to Reproduce:
Go to
"Breakpoint table for bacteria"
use the link for the xls 
to see the correct rendering you can use the pdf link

(I will try to attach the file to the bug)

go to e.g. Sheet "Enterobacteriaceae" 

e.g. Ampicillin-sulbactam should display 8 with superscripts 1,2
instead it looks like it has the value "812"

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:
8 with superscript 1,2

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
