Package: emacs23-common
Version: 23.4+1-3
Severity: minor

The "%" character is sometimes use in URL's, thus in \url as a real
character, but LaTeX thinks that's beginning a comment: % and the
following characters in the line is colorized as a comment, and }
isn't seen as a closing bracket. Example:


/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/url/url.sty says:

% A form of \verb that allows linebreaks at certain characters or
% combinations of characters, accepts reconfiguration, and can usually
% be used in the argument to another command.  It is intended for email
% addresses, hypertext links, directories/paths, etc., which normally
% have no spaces.  The font may be selected using the \urlstyle command,
% and new url-like commands can be defined using \urldef.
% Usage:    Conditions:
% \url{ }   If the argument contains any "%" or "^^", or ends with
%           "\", it can't be used in the argument to another command.
%           The argument must not contain unbalanced braces.
% \url|  |  ...where "|" is any character not used in the argument and not
%           "{" or a space.  The same restrictions as above except that the
%           argument may contain unbalanced braces.
