Our software prints labels using the Proxima Nova font1. The software reads data from a CSV file, and if there's a fraction within a field, we replace that fraction with Unicode values. For example,
1/2 -> \u00BD 1/3 -> \u2153 1/4 -> \u00BC
These are standard Unicode values for common fractions, like 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4. It produces ½, ⅓, and ¼ respectively.
Unfortunately, there don't seem to be standard Unicode values for sixteenths, like 1/16, 3/16, etc. Is there a way to produce sixteenth fractions nicely in the Proxima Nova font? Are there Unicode values that I'm not aware of for sixteenths? Or is there another way?
We have already tried producing sixteenths by creating a superscript character (like superscript 1, 3, etc.) followed by a forward slash and then subscript 16. It looks okay but it still looks noticeably different from other fractions. We are looking for a better solution, if there is one.
1 We are more specifically using Proxima Nova A — Regular as our font, in case it matters.
