# hyperref won't work with accented characters [duplicate]

I have the following issue with hyperref and accented characters that I can't work out:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\end{document}


None of the resulting links take me to the right link in the browser, and actually the first two are disabled (they don't do anything). Am I missing something?

SOLUTION

I just replaced it by the following line:

\href{http://epfl.academia.edu/AlejandroArag\%C3\%B3n}{my academic profile}

You are missing \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} before \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

If you run this:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}


It’s working for me as well, actually no matter if before or after inputenc. Is there a reason you specified the placement, @Mario? –  doncherry May 1 '13 at 17:41
