Dollar sign (\$) dysfunctional in hyperref's \url{} When escaping the dollar sign inside a \url{} command, as shown in my MWE, the following is displayed. (Below is what I am expecting). \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{hyperref} \begin{document} \url{test \$ test}
test \$test \end{document}  I do not have an idea what is causing this. I am using writeLaTeX to compile this - could that be the culprit? Could this answer be the answer? How would I go about implementing that solution for a dollar sign? • Why not just use \url{test$ test}? – Werner Nov 10 '14 at 20:37
• @Werner, yes, of course. That works. Sorry for wasting your time! – Doggie52 Nov 10 '14 at 20:41

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\url{test$test} \end{document}  • True. Just noticed. Excuse the mistake! I was so used to escaping everything else inside URL's that I just assumed I needed to escape $ too! – Doggie52 Nov 10 '14 at 20:41
