We have a bibliographic entry which is like this:

@misc{entry,
    title={Some Title},
    year={2023},
    url="https://website.com/~something/something.pdf"
}

The problem is that the tilde ∼ does not render correctly when pasted into the URL box of a browser. It somehow becomes a non-standard tilde character. What can we do to render it normally?

  • Loading xurl does not seem to fix the issue. (As an aside, I am the author of this question - apparently I forgot to log in. Can someone please merge it with my account?)

  • I cannot replicate the issue, could you edit into your question a small example of code that produces the error you have please?

Adding the tilde as $\sim$ with the URL in parenthesis {} might solve the issue:

@misc{entry,
    title={Some Title},
    year={2023},
    url={https://website.com/$\sim$something/something.pdf},
}
