Well a plain standalone 'tilde' as used by FORMAT is a different  
character than the tilde accent character.  On my US keyboard, typing  
option-shift-n gives me the character #\Small_Tilde (#x2DC) while the  
real "Tilde" (#x7E) is typed by Shift-backtick (the key to the left of  
the "1").  Is it possible that option-n is giving you #x2DC instead of  

I'm not sure exactly what your keyboard is doing, but Mac OS X lets  
you customize keyboard layouts via an XML file, and there's a nice GUI  
front end to this functionality called Ukulele:
You might find it useful to create a "Lisp Layout" which makes it  
easier to type the various Common Lisp special characters.  (I have  
one that modifies Dvorak to makes it easier to type paretheses, tilde,  
# etc.)
