~ Maybe it's just me, but why exactly is there a usage note demonstrating what an n with a tilde over it looks like? It just seems... Stupid?

Spanish[edit]

Despite the etymological connection, in Spanish “tilde” does not mean the diacritic in ã, but rather the diacritic in á, the acute accent. This is a common and understandable misconception.

See: es:tilde for details of Spanish usage.

No, it means diacritic, which includes the acute accent as well as, and especially, the tilde over the n. In Spanish usage, both á and ñ have tildes. —Stephen 14:08, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
