# [OS X TeX] A \url problem

I don't understand, Peter. I attached the PDF that has the links. You
should be able to see everything there, where the URLs are pointing,
etc.

I am simply trying to indent a long URL that has to break. Ideally it
should break at a forward slash. I've tried to force that in my example.

Here is the complete code of my example. It's as simple as I can make
it. The PDF is attached---again.

### code begins here ###
%%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode

\documentclass[12pt, letterpaper]{article}

\usepackage{geometry}
hmargin={1.5in, 1.5in}, vmargin={1.5in, 1.0in},
}
\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}
\setlength{\parskip}{2.0ex plus0.5ex minus0.2ex}
\usepackage{url}

\begin{document}

I'd really like to indent the URL like this.\\
\hspace*{4.0ex}
\begin{minipage}[t]{4.0in}
\href{http://vic.norton.name/finance-math/notionportf/pricedistrib.csv}
{\ttfamily
http://vic.norton.name/finance-math/notionportf/\linebreak%
pricedistrib.csv
}
\end{minipage}

It does look right, but clicking on the top line of the URL'' takes
you to an inaccessible directory. Only the bottom line works the way it
should.

On the other hand clicking anyplace on the hello'' link below works
perfectly.

I'd really like to indent the URL like this.\\
\hspace*{4.0ex}
\begin{minipage}[t]{4.0in}
\href{http://vic.norton.name/finance-math/notionportf/pricedistrib.csv}
{\ttfamily
hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello
hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello
}
\end{minipage}\\[1.0ex]

What is the problem here? What am I missing?

Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Regards,
