    Is there a software that allow fractions to be written and copyied as ½?

    I'd rather write my fraction in this format than these:

    1
    -
    2

    or

    1

    Do you realize that many of us want to ‘outlaw’ “mixed fractions”?
    Why would anyone write 3\frac{2}{3} instead of \frac{11}{3}?

    How would expect a student to write 0.003\frac{2}{3}?

    Thanks, that solves it for me!

    I used a BBC code to HTML code converter that they made these results (I separated the lines because of formatting mixup in these forums):

    <p>[tex]<br />

    3\frac{2}{3}<br />

    [/math</p>

    Oh, that's hilarious! My first reactions was "Why is Plato giving a response that is completely irrelevant!
