I am stuck with a problem of a url to some website I try to put a link to.

The URL is: http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prawo_Lewisa-Mogridge’a and Latex have an issue with the ’ symbol. I put it the very easy way:

I obviously use UTF8 but the URL is Polish. Any idea what could be done? Thanks!


Go to wikipedia and copy its URL as such; then add \ before each %:



Instead of \url, you can use \href, in case you want the hyperlink:


URL with textquoteright


On the other hand, according to Wikipedia, this is the right way to cite:


Check the link

    No need of adding \ when you use \url from url package (which is loaded by hyperref). – user11232 Jan 23 '15 at 3:11
  • Oh well... the link is working, but it is displayed like this: pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prawo_Lewisa-Mogridge%E2%80%99a – Atais Jan 23 '15 at 3:11
  • @Atais. This is the right way to type it, because not every font may have the character – Ludenticus Jan 23 '15 at 3:17

    @HarishKumar. According to the url manual (p.1), «the \url argument cannot contain any “%”, “#”, or “^^”, or end with “\”.» – Ludenticus Jan 23 '15 at 3:29
