I think, that on his screen, john may have actually *seen* a raised 3
after each of the 3,7,1. He just obviously wasn't aware, that text
formatting wouldn't make it through to many/most of the audience...

Alternatively, he might have typed the text with eyes on the keyboard,
and his keyboard layout may have the caret as a "dead-key". So, while
he might have typed a caret it just didn't show up, because he would
have had to press space-key to make the dead-key effective on its own.

PS: The silliness on my side includes (but isn't limited to) answering
a thread that's probably long since off the track...
