Why doesn't Alt 171 produce the fraction 'half' on the keyboard in an email?
Up until recently I have been able to use 'Alt 171' to make the fraction of a half when typing something. This now seem to be not working and sends me out from the email I am trying to send. How can I make fractions again when typing?

Make sure that you have Num Lock switched on when you use Alt + number to enter special characters.
Otherwise the keys act like commands (Alt + 7 -> Alt + Home)
