When copying HTML from the web and pasting it into writer, superscripts aren't retained if the HTML superscript has a class associated with it.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Copy some of the text (verse numbers are superscript!) and paste it into Writer. Notice that the verse numbers are no longer superscript.
3.Using your web browser's developer tools, remove the class from some of the <sup> tags. Try the copy and paste again, and the verse numbers remain superscripted.
<sup> tags with classes don't retain superscript display in Writer.
Superscript text should stay superscripted when pasted

I can confirm that the bug is present in
