Accents in bibliographies

BibTeX not only has a tendency (by default) to mess about with the case of letters in your bibliography, also makes a hash of accent commands: “ma\~nana” comes out as “ma nana” (!). The solution is similar that of the letter case problem: enclose the troublesome sequence in braces, as “{\~n}”, in this example.
