# [texhax] TeX command works for "1 Foo" but not for "11 Foo"

Tue Oct 30 21:49:07 CET 2007

Hi list,

This is a weird problem. I use the following for my thesis to force
me to include a date with each link I refer to, or make it explicit
that I don't need a date, e.g. \link{http://debian.org}{}:

% not making #2 optional on purpose
\burl{#1}%
\if\@empty#2\relax\else{ }\begin{smaller}{[#2]}\end{smaller}\fi%
}

The problem is that this works fine for dates like 1 Oct 2007 or 15
Sep 2007, but as soon as the date is 11 or 22, something goes fishy:

yields:

http://debian.org/Bugs/server-control [10 Oct 2007]

http://debian.org/Bugs/server-control Oct 2007

Either TeX is on drugs, or I am, or I simply don't understand what's
going on. Could you help me figure this out, please?
