    e.g. wrapping math tags around x_0 gives x_0

    If you mean showing x_0 instead of x^n, use shift "-". If you are talking about subscripts and super scripts (there is no such thing as "lowercase" numbers) it is not any single key: enter [ math ] without the spaces, then enter the latex and, finally, [ \math ], again without the spaces.

    For example a_2x^3.

    Clicking on that expression should show you the code.
