I'm transcribing parts of Harm van der Lek's thesis 'The homotopy type of complex hyperplane complements' and due to it being written in 1983 the typesetting isn't very detailed. In latex, how should the picture ** be written (just the part that comes after 'This pregallery is denoted:')? Are the $S_i$'s and $K_i$'s supposed to be the same size, or was that done due to printing constraints?
Edit: If we take them to be the same size then what is the correct way of recreating this in latex, and for those with the knowledge, how about MathML? Note that for MathML my attempt is this:
<msup> <msub><mi>S</mi><mn>0</mn></msub> <mstyle scriptlevel="0"><msub><mi>K</mi><mn>1</mn></msub></mstyle> </msup>
