What's the difference between the fractions with a diagonal line and the
ones with a horizontal line, or is it just cosmetic?
the ones with a diagonal line are used for things like recipe
books or in ordinary text -- never in math. (and i like the
diagonal versions too, in the proper context.)
If there is a difference; does the base of the inferior
horizontal-lined-ones sit on the baseline or can it sit on the descender
i can't answer that in those terms. i'm not even certain where
the base sits for the ones with horizontal lines. however, the
horizontal line *should* line up with a minus sign and with the
horizontal member of a plus sign and the horizontal centerline
of the equals. if that's not done, then these fractions aren't
suited for use in math either.
roy -- are you adding math stuff to fonts again?
