anyone got any good resources I can refer to for the following

I've got a MySQL database that was created by importing from MS Access.

I'm reading it out with PHP to xhtml pages.

The problem is that someone has typed 1/2 into Access, which obligingly
replaced it with the fraction 1/2 symbol, but this has not survived the
transition through PHP to the page.

Help and pointers much appreciated.

Googling for "1/2 in PHP" not giving me much success atm!
