Converting fractions to html entities

Issue

We’ve got some fraction information stored in the database, e.g. ¾ ½

Short of doing a search and replace, are there any inbuilt PHP functions that will automatically convert these to proper html entities?

Solution

You can use the htmlentities() function. This will replace all special characters with their HTML equivalent. It should do the job.
