When you enter \.15 you get a "1/2" displayed. On my system (Mac OS X) this
only works for some fonts.
That makes sense but the problem is that certain fonts that have this
character and display it in eg. A word processing document, don't produce
the character in Mathematica.
Eg. Times gives "1/2", Times New Roman gives a square box.
Additionally the Unicode character coding seems to be different in Mathematica to
what system character palette shows. For example the unicode for "1/2" is
(in Mathematica syntax) \:00bd according to the Mac OS X character palette.
Could someone enlighten me on this?
