I think msubsup is the correct markup, although as discussed here the
other day, some systems are not correctly taking account of the fact that
prime is raised in some fonts (all non-tex fonts, probably).

Does <msup><mi>x</mi><mo>&prime;</mo></msup> also look bad (prime too
small and too high) or is it just msubsup.

You may find
<msub><mi>x'<mi><mn>1</mn></msub> or
look better but they are really just workarounds until renderers catch
