No. It works perfectly. (In maths, an \include* or \href or  
\usepackage statement.)

For example using: \_. Or, when using \usepackage{textcomp} you can  
use its \textunderscore (plus some more). Best documentation: either  
fontinst/finst (*not* Philipp Lehman's Font Installation Guide) or the  
LaTeX Companion.

You can also make _ a text character ...
