MathJax provides a way of using TeX notation to display equations. There is also pretty good accessibility support provided by MathJax. http://www.mathjax.org/resources/articles-and-presentations/accessible-pages-with-mathjax/

Without using some sort of plugin, or markup, I can't think of a simple way of conveying mathematical semantics short of writing out equations long hand as you have done e.g. "10 to the power 4"
