I promise I don't mean to single you out! I respond to the issues as I see them.

My thought when reading was whether or not the issue was LaTeX related
or Org related. While many readers of the list *are* LaTeX experts, in
my opinion it's a lot easier to solve it in LaTeX first (via direct
routes) and post to the list with something like:

"This works in latex:

... code ...

How could I do that in Org?"

Otherwise, those not knowing any better (myself) are left looking for
an Org solution when it's really a matter of solving the LaTeX end of
things. When I went to look for LaTeX-specific fixes, I didn't see
anyone using code like yours (except with things like
\baseline{value}), so it made me wonder why you might think that would
work. Intuitively, if p works, I'd think it would show up on latex.SE.
I'm guessing previous replies have colored the most recent one. It was
just meant as a suggestion to get an answer faster, nothing against
