This template builds nicer-looking common fractions. It takes one, two or three parameters: the optional integer (may be signed), the optional numerator and the required denominator; in this order.

{{fraction|1|2|3}}
1 ⅔ (integer, numerator and denominator)
{{fraction|2|3}}
(numerator and denominator)
{{fraction|3}}
(denominator only)

This template differs from {{frac}} in that it tries to use precomposed glyphs and otherwise just inserts a proper fraction slash and possibly a thin space, but does not superscript the numerator and subscript the denominator.

Examples:

½ ¼ ½ ¾ 2/7 3/7 4/7 5/7 6/7 ¼ ½ ¾ ⅟16 3/16 5/16 7/16 9/16 11/16 13/16 15/16 5/32 27/32

m/s km/h kg·m/s2 ⅟s Mbit/s

To allow numerical sorting of a column containing fractions, use {{sortfrac}} instead. It is a combination of {{frac}} and {{sort}}.
