[Gtk-sharp-list] Superscript in TextView

I figured it out, I was reading the GTK 3 docs which tells me the
value of rise is in pixels. However in GTK 2 the value is actually in
Pano Units, 1024 units per pixel. I needed to set rise to a much
larger number before I could see any effect.

I created a blog post about it here:
