If you're using a typeface that has these glyphs, you can use the
superscript 0-9, subscript 0-9, and fraction slash to build fractions.
This eliminates some of the pain of changing font sizes and positioning,
and the fractions you build look exactly the same as the thirds,
fourths, and eighths glyphs. 

Email I sent to my department: 

Fractions available as complete glyphs are listed for copying and
pasting. New fractions not present as glyphs can be composed as needed
using the fraction parts. All parts are inserted as Unicode code points
using File > Utilities > Character Palette: 

numerators: superscript zero through superscript nine (Unicode U+2070,
U+00B9, U+00B2, U+00B3, and U+2074 through U+2079) 
denominators: subscript zero through nine (Unicode U+2080 through
fraction slash (Unicode U+2044) 

Text I added to Reference page in template file: 

The following fraction glyphs can be inserted using an Alt+numpad key
combination: ¼ <Alt>0188; ½ <Alt>0189; ¾ <Alt>0190 
The following fraction glyphs can be inserted via the character palette
or by copying and pasting: ⅓ ⅔ ⅛ ⅜ ⅝ ⅞ 
The following fractions are composed of parts; insert via copying and
pasting: ¹⁄₁₆ ³⁄₁₆ ⁵⁄₁₆ ⁷⁄₁₆ ⁹⁄₁₆ ¹¹⁄₁₆ ¹³⁄₁₆ ¹⁵⁄₁₆  
The following fraction parts can be used to compose new fractions;
insert by copying and pasting: ¹²³⁴⁵⁶⁷⁸⁹⁰ ⁄ ⁄ ⁄ ₁₂₃₄₅₆₇₈₉₀

I have text that expresses one-and-one-half as 1-1/2, which could be
interpreted as 1-to-1/2. I would like to be able to show the fraction
without the hyphen.
