    Unicode Character 'VULGAR FRACTION ONE TENTH' (U+2152)


    Switched the forum editor to source mode and entered this string:

    Cheers friend!

    Very interesting.

    I would assume one can therefore use HTML to make a post ?

    <html><body>
    <b>TEST for bold text</b>

    <font color="red">TEST for red text</font>
    </body></html>


    I guess not.

    Unless I'm doing it wrong.

    Hi David,

    It can be done... well sorta... but you have to use BBCode to do it. Here's how:

    Take you original html code and paste it into this html to bbcode converter here:

    Cool HTML to BBCode Converter v. 1.32


    Now convert it to BBCode and paste your converted results back into your post and it will show up like so:

    TEST for bold text

    TEST for red text

    I kind of figured that was the way to do it.

    It still puzzles me why with a font that supports ⅒{C&P}, one cannot use the numeric keypad to insert ⅒.{C&P}

    It won't work in Open Office.
    I need to select "Insert special character".

    Oh well.

    OpenOffice does not generally support the insertion of special character (as described in your original post):

    Quick refrenece:

    Direct download link to the OpenOffice Special Character "How-to" manual:

    BTW, I also use OpenOffice.

    Yes, that is the way it works and I can do that too but I cannot use the keyboard insertion method as you originally described. OpenOffice.org does not support that method natively unless you create a macro to do it.

    How does one do a macro ?

    Is there a macro for everyday typing ?

    See the first two results here for more information on how-to create macros in OpenOffice:

    I doubt it (if you are referring to OpenOffice)

    Unfortunately, I have no interest in trying to create an OpenOffice macro to insert a specific character.


    Good luck.

    You wouldn't believe some of the thousands of characters I've found in all the various fonts of Word 2010. Click Insert > Symbol > More Symbols and select the font called "MS Reference Specialty." It has crazy fractions like "1/243" and other mathematical goodies like the "square root of minus one."
