Repeating decimal notation

What about Template:Overline? I found it in use on Wikipedia: Repeating decimal --Xenwolf (talk) 12:46, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

Here an example:

5 30.30 55/54, 56/55 ?
6 36.36 ? 49/48, 50/49 ? ?
7 42.42 ? 40/39
8 48.48 ? 36/35 ? ?
9 54.54 33/32 65/63
10 60.60 ? 28/27 ? ?

The " meaning

It seems that the meaning of " is meant to be the same content as left of this cell in this case, in most other cases it's the same content as above this cell. I have my reservations about this shorthand, although of course I understand that it saves a lot of useless reading and thus increases the overview considerably. In javascript-enhanced tables it breaks or prevents sortability. Could it be possible to get the same effect via CSS? Would it even be a stylistic matter? --Xenwolf (talk) 12:26, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

Just thought I'd throw this out there, but the phrase the same content as left of this cell is also the meaning of the merged cells on the Table of 94edo intervals... --Aura (talk) 13:56, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
May need further experimenting until I find a better solution. The sortability problem doesn't sound relevant, unless we really sort it. FloraC (talk) 17:34, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Well this was meant as a reminder. I have seen this shorthand in tables that could benefit well from being sortable. --Xenwolf (talk) 18:13, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
