A symbolic url that goes to a url address with a # (fragment identifier) should position the focus on a specific part of the web page. That behavior does not work correctly.
The # or fragment identifier in the url address is ignored.
So if the symbolic url has this address http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_sign#Other_uses, the symbolic url opens up web address http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_sign.
Yet, if the same url address is used in a browser, the web page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_sign opens and the focus is on the topic Other Uses.
A symbolic url with a url address that includes a hash sign (#) should navigate to the url and put the focus on the part of the web page with that fragment identifier.
Here is background information on how the number sign is used in URL addresses.
In a URL the hash sign (#) is used immediately after the URL of a web page or other resource to introduce a "fragment identifier" a name or id which defines a position within that resource or a section of the document. For example, in the URL http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_sign#Other_uses, the portion after the # (Other_uses) is the fragment identifier (a link such as this will take you to a section in a web page, such as the 'In other languages' section of this article).
The expected behavior is that the url will behave the same whether it is used in a browser or in a symbolic url. The symbolic url should not ignore the number sign, hash sign or "fragment identifier".
The change is a configuration that exposes a symbolic url that includes a # in the url address.
