Hi Karen, I tried to build an equation based on your description. Maybe I got the point with my third example in the file: Be aware that there are two forms of ??: one is the superscript, one is the exponentiation. They behave differently (see attached file). It is known that the automatic formatting capabilities of FM are not as good as those of TEX. In your case you may have tourched this wound. Some people do a fine truning of the positioning at the end of their work, but only the most ugly things - which are not many even in a physics thesis.
