It seems to me that it ought to be possible to affix `round-scripts'
to all four corners of a symbol.  For example, one would like the
effect of the TeX snippet $a^1_2$ to be possible in Emacs, too.

So I agree with Richard that it is about "where", and much less about
"how".  ({Super,sub,...}scripts are usually smaller, so that the size
could be added to "how".)

The TeX snippet shows a with a superscript 1 and a subscript 2.
A preposition is not a good thing to end a sentence with.
