Thanks for the suggestion, I'd forgotten about that package.  That
made the url have a blue box around it, but it still fails.


Acrobat gets my browser to:

> Not Found
> The requested URL /~{}Gabriele.Nebe/LATTICES/density.html was not found on this server.

With skim it gets to:


Making '\~{}' to be '~' fails too.  The link is in a figure legend but
moving it to the main text doesn't help.
