Text using OpenType slashed and stacked fractions

Most OpenType fonts expose only a subset of the total OpenType features available. If a specified font does not support a particular feature, the default glyphs are used instead.

The following code example shows how to define fraction styles for the Palatino Linotype font, using properties of the Typography object.

<Paragraph FontFamily="Palatino Linotype" Typography.Fraction="Slashed">
  1/8 1/4 3/8 1/2 5/8 3/4 7/8
<Paragraph FontFamily="Palatino Linotype" Typography.Fraction="Stacked">
  1/8 1/4 3/8 1/2 5/8 3/4 7/8
