Regex expression to find superscript characters only?

I'm currently working on a very fiddly translation that contains many instances of the French "e" for the English ordinal "th" (e.g. "Ve s." becomes "5th century").
Unfortunately the "e" is superscripted in the middle of a large number of tags and I can't do a standard find and replace because Trados thinks that it's not a whole word.
Does anyone know the regex code to pick out only superscript sections of a text so that I can replace "e" with "th" without having to do it all by hand?
On the same subject, does anyone know of a good resource with a comprehensive list of regex codes? I often need to use them but find it's so difficult to find out what to enter that I end up not bothering.
Thanks in advance!
