How do I type fractions?

Help please to type a half and a quarter as fractions. Trying to type 25 and a half but 25 1/2 doesn't look right!
Thanks in anticipation.

If you are using Microsoft Word, click on Insert on the tool bar, select Symbol from the drop down menu and scroll througn the character set for the fractions that you want. The character code for a Latin-1 quarter is 00BC and a half is 00BD.
