Hi,

I'm wondering, exactly how equivalent are the following sequences:

U+00BC (vulgar fraction one quarter)

U+215F U+0034 (fraction numerator one; digit four)

U+0031 U+2044 U+0034 (digit one; fraction slash; digit four)

In particular, should they be rendered with the same glyph?

Is it possible to compose a single glyph for (say) twenty two over

seven, using the fraction slash?

If I were to write "one quarter" as U+0031 U+2044 U+0034, how should I

then write "one and a quarter"? Is there a "fraction space" which I

should use to separate the "1" from the "1/4"?

Jill
