Stacked Fractions in Single Line Text

When using RomanS, how do you stack fractions in single line text?  AutoCad will do it automatically in multiline text but I am having trouble in single line text.

Can not automatically stacked with single line text.

 

%%188 you will get 1/4

%%199 you will get 1/2

That's all fraction characters available with Romans

When a line of text is created with the "text" command, not mtext, I have seen AutoCAD displays 1/4 stacked on a diagonal when %%4 is typed, 5/8 when %%10 is typed, and 5/16 when %%5 is typed. I can't figure out how to get that back. I thought it had something to do with Big Font but I'm not sure.

Answers like:

%%188 you will get 1/4

%%199 you will get 1/2

or

unicode

are just junk! How do I get any fraction from 1/16 to 15/16.

%% fractions must be built into the font file: these are not universal and you don't get them with every font file out there.

 

So either look round for fonts that have the %% codes you desire, not stick with MTEXT are your choices.
