Is there a way to get the superscript math mode behavior without using
By way of background: I work at a large school that has a large web site that occasionally has math content on pages. I recently convinced the powers that be to start using MathJax to render all of the math content, but they have encountered a hitch. There is a collection of pages that is processed by complicated subsystems in an automated way, and I'm told that the
^ character is a control character at some stage(s).
So either they have to work around that, or I could start communicating the math without using
^ symbol. (I understand that I may still have a MathJax issue to move on to, but my issue starts with this LaTeX question.)
