I've invented a custom symbol I wish to use in my LaTeX writings. It is a one, 1, overlapped with a tilde. This image shows what I want:
The actual symbol for the tilde is
\sim. I have seen
\rlap used to make characters overlap, as in
but when I try
I get an error complaining about a missing
$. Duh. What is a valid way to get this one+tilde symbol?
I prefer to avoid any uncommon packages or anything quirky, so that the proper LaTeX way of doing this can be used for online markup, such as blogs, wikis, and Q&A forums, which may be using any version of LaTeX and may or may not have any particular desired package.
