In Microsoft Word, you type

27th and hit a space the th date suffix will resize and go to top margin with a date suffix format.

In Adobe Photoshop I have to often make a new layer for adding date th, nd, rd, st with extra spacing and resize the text.

Can Adobe Photoshop do this? Easier way around?
