I can get browsers to show the fractions one-half and one-quarter
by invoking the named entities ½ and ¼ -- what must
I do to get a browser to display the fraction one-third? ⅓
is *not* working for me to that end (not in IE7, anyway) :-{ .

TIA; cheers; and my apologies if this has been discussed to death
in earlier threads predating my entry into ciwah,
