I anticipated that (unicode) prime is a pain to handle, given that
different fonts present it differently.

$\primed{a}...$ is a very readable and reasonable solution (unlike
\mathord{}, which seems to be a messy fix). I will learn and use that.

Thank you!


P.S. inverting the order of the "exponents", if prime is some sort of
exponent, was a surprising result.
