## Preventing line breaks

The `~` is a special character in Hyperlatex, and is replaced by the HTML-tag for "non-breakable space".

As we saw before, you can typeset the ~ character by typing `\~{}`. This is also the way to go if you need the ~ in an argument to an HTML command that is processed by Hyperlatex, such as in the URL-argument of `\xlink`.

You can also use the `\mbox` command. It is implemented by replacing all sequences of white space in the argument by a single `~`. Obviously, this restricts what you can use in the argument. (Better don't use any math mode material in the argument.)
