latex + url = ???

Learn something new every day.

When I had a url in LaTeX in \url{} it looked like it was clickable in the output, but it didn’t link to anywhere because I left out the http://. I’m so used to web browsers that I expected it to default to http without the protocol specified, but it doesn’t. It’s just a dead link that doesn’t do anything without the http.

Note:  For all I know, the behavior could be specific to the PDF reader you use.
