When writing fractions they do not appear correctly. How can I do this . win98se

What are you using to write. In Word you can go to Insert - Symbol and then scroll down and select. The most common are about half way down and there are a few more later on.

Programs, accessories, character map.

to use Start - programs - accessories - systems tools- character map

this by selecting font will give options of ready made fractions to either copy or key strokes to create ;)

there is a way with the num pad! you press alt and then a sequence of numbers

i cant remember them off by heart so go look for them on google!

im pretty sure they have fractions

But for 1/4 1/2 3/4 just use the num. keypad as normal with the forward slash at the top next to the asterisk key. They will change as you move on to the next character.

I think that is a function of some software. It does not work for me (but I cant be certain as I do have a foreign keyboard)

the 1/4 can be done by holding down "alt" and typing (on the numeric keypad) 0188.

  sattman 11:50 12 Aug 04

another option, on number keypad with Num locks on

alt + 0188 = ¼
alt + 0189 = ½
alt + 0190 = ¾

  cga 11:51 12 Aug 04

So it can ¼ half is Alt + 0189 ½ and 3/4 is Alt + 0190 ¾

3 (or maybe 4) solutions for 1.
