Such as this one:
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?1208
Quoted Text
1 � cups all purpose or any compliant flour
� c soybean flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup compliant oil
� cup brown sugar
2 eggs
� cup water
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup dried cherries or raisins (optional)

This recipe has a ton more sugar than I would use, but it would be interesting to know exactly what the recipe is calling for, including the water, flours, etc.

To see recipes such as these, you need to change the Character Encoding in the browser for that page.

In Mozilla Firefox, go to View, Character Encoding and choose "Western (ISO-8859-1)" to see the fractions...

I found the settings area in Chrome, but mine was already set to the Encoding that works in Mozilla, but still renders "funky" in Chrome...

Here is the recipe, FYI:
Ingredients:

    1 ½ cups all purpose or any compliant flour
    ¾ c soybean flour
    1 cup granulated sugar
    2 cups oatmeal
    1 cup compliant oil
    ¾ cup brown sugar
    2 eggs
    ½ cup water
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup dried cherries or raisins (optional)


How to make it:

    Combine flours, oatmeal, baking powder, spices and salt in mixing bowl.
    Mix in large mixing bowl the oil and sugar.
    Add eggs and vanilla to the creamed mixture and beat for two minutes.
    Gradually add flour mixture, stir in cherries or raisins.
    Mix well.
    Drop by rounded Tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet. Press down slightly with fork.
    Bake @ 350° F for 9-10 minutes for chewy cookies and 10/12 minutes for crunchy cookies.
    Note:
    Can also substitute chocolate chips for raisins/cherries.

Thanks, very much, Joe. I will have to do some subbing, but it is a lot easier to start with a recipe someone else (Mayflowers), has done than doing it from scratch! (smile)

Problem is page claims to use utf-8 encoding, when the content on the page does not actually use that encoding scheme.

In chrome to view the content:

Tools->encoding->Western (ISO-8859-1)

I edited this recipe to correct the problem with the original data entry of the recipe.  This overcomes the encoding issues for this recipe only.

The question marks in recipes were all fractions.
