~ 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?


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)
