This is not really bug because the browser interprets '#' as an anchor tag

As told here -> http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2396.txt

"The character "#" is excluded because it is used to delimit a URI from a fragment identifier in URI references "

Ah, thanks. Well, input could be encoded to # in that case?

Same thing. But even Google interprets it as a # symbol
