ah thanks for the clue. After I de-selected the
view/encoding/Auto-select in IE, the links now work.
But the problem is not really gone... because first
why encoding should matter for this type of documents,
and secondly, if I hover the cursor to the offending
links the address appears at the bottom of IE is correct
(so is the address appears in the address box if the
link if opened in a new window) So I think IE somehow
translates the "~" inconsistantly in its internals, as
Dave have suggested.
