I can confirm this issue. BTW, you will get this error even without the 
"mathml" option. It is a know issue, see:

So the correct way is "$n^{\text{th}}$". I know that your files are 
automatically generated so it is not something easilly solvable. 

You will not get this error with "mathjax" option, without "mathml", so 
you may want to stick to it.
