In a recent post, I discovered that when putting a product function in a fraction (using the \prod command), the indices are displayed to the right of the product function's symbol rather than below and above, which I find much more pleasing to the eye. I find that the same thing happens with the \sum command.

Using the MATH tags, which implies the \displaystyle command, we see that alone, i.e., not in a fraction, we get:

\(\displaystyle \prod_{k=k_i}^{n}\left(\frac{f(k)}{g(k)} \right)\)

Writing this in its equivalent form, we get:

\(\displaystyle \frac{\prod_{k=k_i}^{n}\left(f(k) \right)}{\prod_{k=k_i}^{n}\left(g(k) \right)}\)

My question: is there a way to force the indices to be displayed as they are in the first expression of the product?
