Converting fractions to HTML

I am trying to convert vulgar fractions (½) embedded in a word doc to HTML. They are not getting converted to a valid HTML encoded character as the unicode values still exist in the resulting HTML file. The encoding being used is UTF-8.

I am using aspose-words-17.9-jdk16.jar to convert.

Thanks for sharing the document. Please note that Aspose.Words mimics the behavior of MS Word. If you convert your document to HTML using MS Word, you will get the same output.

Please share your expected output HTML document here for our reference. We will then provide you more information about your query.

I would expect the fraction to be converted to an html entity. In this case, it should be ½ See attachedunicode-fraction-symbols-expected.zip (4.7 KB)
