It's not the tilde. Looking at the source for the page proves that to  
me. I was able to download the ODT and ODB files, but not the RTF or  
ZIP files. I get a 404 error document for those. One of them uses the  
tilde, the other does not. The two that I was able to download both use  
the tilde, so it's not the tilde. According to the server, the RTF and  
ZIP files simply are not there. I can understand how it might appear to  
John that the RTF is present, because he only uses a relative link for  
that file, and it might be present in the current directory of his  
local harddrive, giving the illusion of being present on the server.  
The links might be what he intends them to be, but the RTF and ZIP  
files are certainly not where the links are pointing.
