If you are using a (javax.swing) JButton rather than (java.awt)
Button, then you could display a graphical image on the button. I
tried using the 2nd power character once and found that it didn't
display correctly on all platforms. Using the image would avoid that
problem, and (if you create the image file) give you more control over
how it looks.
