Again, many thanks, Wolfgang.

The key is to use \from rather than \goto. As for using just % in the  
links,

\useURL
[Hoyrup2007bURL]
[{http://www.akira.ruc.dk/~jensh/Publications/2005%7BR%7D1_Folkerts_vol-1.PDF 
}]
[]
[{http://www.akira.ruc.dk/\~{}jensh/Publications/2005\%7BR\%7D1  
\_Folkerts\_vol-1.PDF}]

works but looks odd, since TeXShop (my editor) puts everything from  
the the first “%” on in the URL field (the 2nd field) in red  
(indicating that it is commented out). Using “\%” in this field seems  
to work too.

Very best, Alan
