All my observations referred to using the macro without performing  
any HEX translation: the point was to take any DOI copied from any  
journal site as is, and have \doi{this-doi} insert in a LaTeX  
document this doi verbatim and make the doi a link to the  
corresponding web address on the doi proxy <http://dx.doi.org/>. The  
user is not expected to perform any pre-processing, namely to replace  
the problematic characters with HEX escape sequences.

Heiko Oberdiek's macro does exactly that: it takes as an argument the  
DOI in its original form, here


prints this original form in the LaTeX output, and makes any HEX  
translation (required for use in a URL) completely transparent to the  

For example, in the present case my LaTeX document would contain:

Chashechkin, Yu.~D., Kistovich, Yu.~V. \& Smirnov, S.~A. (2001)
Linear generation theory of 2D and 3D periodic internal waves in a  
viscous stratified fluid.
\textit{Environmetrics}, vol.~\textbf{12}, no.~1, pp.~57--80.
Received 26~March 1998; revised 19~November 1998.
