Hello,

I wonder what is the correct usage to typeset an exponent in another base as decimal.

For example in hexadecimal :

    3C 4A EE x 16^{15}     (where 16 and 15 are decimal numbers)

or
    3C 4A EE x 10^{15}     (because hexadecimal '10'  is decimal '16')

or even
    3C 4A EE x 10^{F}      (because decimal '15' is hexadecimal 'F')


Thanks in advance for your opinion/knowledge about that.

See Wikipedia on hexadecimal. There is more than one possibility.
