Actually, it *is* a tilde (or at least looks identical to).
The character I typed is mid-height and wouldn't fit over even a
lower-case "n", as a tilde needs to.
See the section "Keyboards" here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilde
Actually, if you read that page generally, it talks of swung dashes
and appears to make the distinction I do. But yes: it does think
that what you get directly from the keyboard is a tilde.
My keyboard only has one such symbol on it that I am aware of, so it
has to be the tilde.
The aforementioned key on my keyboard is used for this, ergo it must
be a tilde.
I think these just tell you that some people call the swung dash a
tilde: I know that, of course, and I don't expect everyone (or indeed
anyone) to agree with me. And I have to confess to a bit of cheek in
adding a reference to this character to my serious point about "&"
and "@". I shall not press my case!
