Name for a character or "sub-label" that appears in the lower-right corner like a log base

See the attachment.

I have a labeling system I am describing in a document. I cannot remember the name of such characters that appear in the bottom corner of a main character. Its the same way the represent logarithmic bases, but there is a non-mathmatical term for it...

I think I remember doing in it MS Word once where it had a particular term. I feel like its right on my tongue but I cannot spit it out...

Anyway, can anyone help here? The labeling system has nothing to do with math.

Thanks,

Subscript, subfix, or index?

We use the term 'Subscript' to describe that option in the text editor we use with NX, our CAD product. Besides, Microsoft uses that same terminology to describe this option in MS Word, so I guess it MUST be right, eh?

Superscript is upper right, and subscript is lower right.

In the case of logs, these subscripts are called bases.

Subscript is what I was looking for.
Thanks everyone.

Just noticed the subscript and superscripts on ET. So we can do things like
