I want to write «nPr» in org mode

Now org mode doesn't treat "^" as a superscripting operator if its preceded by a space char. The best I could come up with was


where there is a zero width space between the n and the P.

This is quite clunky. Is there any better way?

Well for now ${}^nP_r$ works... sorta kinda...

The space between the "n" and the "P" is too much

So I am doing ${}^n\!P_r$
