    Linux server and octothorpe

    Level 7
      Do Linux servers fail to display image file names which contain an
      octothorpe?

      Thanks in advance

          that's a reserved character for URLs to denote anchor links:

          mysite.com/mypage.html#myanchor

          So, yea, don't use it in any of your web filenames.

              You can always URL-encode such special chars. But I agree that avoiding
              them is usually better.
