Copying both of these over to my test wikis, they both show the superscript
1 link, on both current SVN trunk and current 1.17 release branch.

Double-check that your extensions are up to date; use the version of the
Cite extension in the 1.17 branch (from REL1_17 raw SVN checkout, or select
1.17 in the download from mediawiki.org). It's possible that an old version
of the ext might have some funkiness?

This also seems to work for me with both 1.17 and trunk, using the matching
current versions of StringFunctions.
