sometimes. depends on the TDS macros, and which macro package you use
to interface to hypertex. in the worst case, you can get a different
behaviour when a \special occurs and when it doesnt. David can provide
chapter and verse on this, he had an example where a color special had
some side effect which Lamport was arguing about
