So I was answering in a thread here and what I got was ugly:

[tex]k_1 = e^{\frac {E_a} {RT_1}}[/tex]

What I don't like is that the exponential part is so small it is barely readable (checked in Opera, Firefox, IE and Chrome). I can write it as

[tex]k_1 = exp\left({\frac {E_a} {RT_1}}\right)[/tex]

and it definitely looks better, but sometimes I feel like writing e

Is there a way of making the exponential part larger?

For example OpenOffice formats it as

Still not perfect, but closer to what I am thinking about.

Any ideas?

^{x}instead of exp(x) makes the equation easier to follow - at least for me it is easier to see and group exponents when they are all in superscript position.Is there a way of making the exponential part larger?
