Default Describing the Positioning of 1st 2nd, 3rd, etc.

For characters like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc., I need to instruct a typesetter to set the characters st, nd and rd at the top of the line rather than the bottom? In the jargon of the industry, how are such characters differentiated and specified, top or bottom?
