Actually, it seems to me that the best solution is for browsers to
support the unicode fraction slash [U+2044], unless that has too bad
performance problems.

?istein: Have you talked to any browser vendor to see if there's a
reason they don't support this yet? At least firefox supports
ligatures these days which is somewhat similar.

But ultimately I agree, since we support MathML, it seems like a
solution should live there if a markup solution is needed.
