About the only time you don't get space after the period is when it's
followed by another punctuation character.  For Japanese, see the
Requirements for Japanese Layout [1].

You could add a zero-width word joiner before the superscript, or you
could move the superscript before the period, since it's possible that
the formatter would produce better results if it can hang a period at
the end of a line out into the margin.

Sorry I can't be more specific, but I've got a plane to cacch.
