Percentage chances of ethereal, superior, or both

Does anyone know off hand the percentage chances that any given item will drop as ethereal, superior, or both? I'm trying to decide whether it's worth it to strip off my mf and run pits, wsk, cows looking for an eth blade (eth sup would be ideal) for an oath runeword, or should I just buy one. Thanks!

5% for Ethereal, and superior varies, less mf will get you more superior items. About 10 - 20% chance for Superior IIRC,

Thanks RTB. Do you know how the odds work on the combined ethereal superior weaps? Is there a percentage chance for that combination (i.e. 1% of any drop), or is it a secondary application to an ethereal drop (i.e. 5% chance of ethereal and then 10% chance of superior, or .5% chance of ethereal superior on any drop).

Regarding the item generation process, superior and cracked item are an own item type (the game checks for unique, then set, then rare, then magical, then superior (AFAIK), then nonmagical and all the rest is cracked), although MF doesn't directly affect their drop chance, while etherealness is a kind of bonus affix.

The chance for superior is based off of the chance for a normal "white" item, right?

At least the ilvl-qlvl part of the formula is important when the game is checking wether or not to drop a superior item.
