I used to think I was a pretty good programmer, until I started using stackoverflow and saw what real professionalism is.

comment characters getting swallowed
To expand a little on @egreg's comment, fi is converted to a ligature in many fonts. Sounds like something's wrong with the font that would contain that ligature.

There's a posting about another way to add symbols that may help.

comment ! Undefined control sequence \backsim
@Naema - installing a package only makes it available. You have to specify in the document that you actually want to use it. Packages can change the way LaTeX works, so LaTeX doesn't make any assumptions about what packages you want -- you have to tell it explicitly. (Imagine trying to figure out what's going on if it didn't work that way!)

comment Linux Libertine package and fonts not working anymore (fall 2012)
The situation may have improved recently, at least in some distributions. I use pdflatex from TexLive on Windows 7. I installed TexLive in early September 2012, and first tried to use biolinum today. It wasn't working as the docs led me to expect; I found this posting, looked around in my install, and concluded that the libertine-legacy package was installed. I just reinstalled TexLive, and biolinum now works fine. The current package seems to be named `libertine'. HTH.

comment Forcing linebreaks in \url
You can also use \href with the text set to the url, using \texttt, and putting the line breaks in explicitly. You gain flexibility at the price of a little more work.
