Expanded the article, added an examples section. Moved the original image down to the examples as I thought it was a good example of how a ligand can play both the role of a terminal AND a bridging ligand. Put a generic example of a μ2 bridging ligand at the top. Explained the numbering scheme for μ ligands and mentioned that μ2 is often denoted as μ. Does Polyfunctional ligands deserve its own section? I don't think so, but want to hear what others think.PedroDaGr8 (talk) 16:30, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Subscript, not superscript
I've always been taught that the number appears as subscript. See page 193 of this document:

- According to the current version of Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry – IUPAC Recommendations 2005 (Red Book), the bridging index n, the number of coordination centres connected by a bridging ligand, is placed as a right subscript. The bridging index 2 is not normally indicated.
