# ~ does not produce the desired behaviour and is rendered [closed]

Consider the following .tex document

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\begin{document}
F.~Bar
\end{document}


Somehow the document gets rendered as this (using texi2pdf)

The problem does not appear to be in the typesetting since the same thing happens to files that are sent to me by Windows users and that compile fine for them.

Does anyone happen to see what is the problem?

 Problem solved using pdflatex! – AnonUser Oct 4 '12 at 14:14 I don't see any problem on my machine (with texi2pdf). – egreg Oct 4 '12 at 14:15 Welcome to TeX.sx! Your MWE compiles on my system without problems. Could it be that you included ~ in your editor with a special input encription or did your editor use a special code setting? – Kurt Oct 4 '12 at 14:16 @AnonUser Could you elaborate? Your question sounds 'too localised' without some more explanation. – Joseph Wright♦ Oct 4 '12 at 14:37
