Oops. And the frac feature is...complicated.

There are 13 chaining contexts. I believe I based it upon Tal Leming's Fraction Fever code. So while not an infinite arbitrary fraction feature, I doubt people will be using more than it can handle.

If needed, I can create a sample in some OFL font.

You're welcome to try with my Mandala font.

Fractions and Ordinals both use a chaining context.
