Hello

You can use

     Subsuperscript[x,2,3]
     and then convert to StandardForm (using "Ctrl Shift N")

or type

    x Ctrl - Ctrl 5
    and then insert the super- and subscript values

or use the Classroom Assistant Palette (in Version 7)

    first tab in "Typesetting"

I hope this helps.

Best Regards
Norbert Marxer
