Re: # in URL cause compiling to hang

2011-07-09 Thread Paul Rubin
I just created a test doc (article class) in LyX 2.0, insert a URL (in a URL
inset) containing a hash character (#), and it worked just fine in PDF output. 
Escaping it with a backslash caused problems.

That said, if you replace the hash character with %23 in the URL, you get the
same result, and that may avoid whatever caused the error message.

Yes.

From the Docutils latex writer::

# We need to escape #, \, and % if we use the URL in a command.
special_chars = {ord('#'): ur'\#',
 ord('%'): ur'\%',
 ord('\\'): ur'\\',
}

# problematic chars double caret and unbalanced braces:

# in URL cause compiling to hang

2011-07-07 Thread Louis Turk
Hi everyone,

http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/hadith/bukhari/002.sbt.html#001.002.035
 
The # in the above URL causes this error message:

Illegal parameter number in definition of \Hy@tempa.

}

You meant to type ## instead of #, right?

Or maybe a } was forgotten somewhere earlier, and things

are all screwed up? I'm going to assume that you meant ##.


Is there any way force lyx to use this url?


Thanks,

Lou


PS Two months ago, right after posting some questions, I was
hospitalized with dengue fever, and couldn't respond to those how
